Stator? ABS Light and headlight dimming

my low beam head light went out, so ive just been running hi-beam only for a couple rides. i've noticed that the headlight and instrument cluster dims and goes back to normal throughout the ride. is my stator going bad?

i also noticed my abs light come on a few times randomly going down the highway. it went right back off. weird.

I'd go with the regulator myself as the possible problem. Test the charging volts.

Although I would start with grounds, system relay and battery terminals, these being the cheapest to fix.

Arnotts, D&D, SEPST, custom paint or all chrome according to mood, GRC seat, wave rotors, Muscle wheels, Burleigh bars, V-Gauge, assorted pretty bits.

My stator went out on my 04b awhile ago. My lights would - ie instr. & headlight went out around 1800 rpm or so. Pain in the ass to figure it out. Bike ran Ok. Checked usual stuff.... grounds, cables, battery. All were fine. Funny thing is it happened right after we did the U. E. fuel tank. Weird. Can't remember how we figured it out. Luckly for me my bike was still under factory warranty AND lv harley had one in stock!! Go figure. This was maybe a year and a half ago? $50 later is I was crusin.
