Returned to the shop that did the work and had them check it out. They confirmed a burned out stator phase and were very forthcoming in making it right and making me happy.
I'll be back on the road for around 75$. Will look into the regulator upgrade when I have some time.

If the $75 is the difference you pay, it is likely from RM Stator in Quebec , just a FYI , they were a reputable place. I no longer feel that way. Be aware, very few places you can get a after market delta wound stator for under $400 . If you paid around $115 it is a China Star Y
connected stator,it will output 330 watts, however the wire gauge is one 18 gauge per phase
, OEM Delta is two 2 per phase, if you think a single 18 gauge wire can carry 14 amps the same as two 18 gauge wires, you are mistaken
.I did a post for those going with the China stator, if you convert to a Polaris regulator immediately
, you are back in the ball park.
One more point, many think for $100 every 2 years isn't that bad, if you install the Polaris regulator immediately, we are talking lasting equal to or greater than the OEM stator. Wait and the minute you start using that china stator with the OEM regulator, you are starting to overheat the magnet wire, change over to the Series regulator 6 months or a year later and you could fry the China stator and the Polaris regulator, as the overheated magnet wire will have a insulation breakdown already occurred, the Series regulator switches rapidly above base load,
instead of shunting excess power as heat, it allows the Volts AC to climb, and 48 to 60 VAC is possible to have across phases, combine that with insulation breakdown from previous overheat cycles = stator shorted turns = stator failure.
