What are your symptoms? I guess you put an ohm meter on the battery when it's running to confirm this?

What exact voltage are you reading when the engine is idling and howmuch does add to that when you rev it? should be 14.3 and not to much schould add.
There is not much more than the stator and the regulator. in the electical diagnostic manual are a few measurements you can do on the stator but the regulator should keep the voltage stable.. the more the bat is charged the less current will flow..
you can measure the charge when you remove the main fuse and connect a amp meter over the open contacts. hard to say what should read but amps instead of milliamps are a indicator.
Is the battery holding charge in rest? i mean a half dead battery draws a bigger current and gets warm

battery in rest engine off is about 12.6 (full) and when you start it takes a few seconds to rise to 14.3v after a day maybe 5-10 seconds and in winter maybe a minute

What are you calling "over charging"? What voltage are you reading?

Thats not good! is the regulator grounded ok? the voltages from the stator are (have no diagnostic manual at work) say from low rev 15 volts to maybe 40 -50 volts at 7-8-9K linear climbing...

I can imagine a bad ground distroys the regulator.. also check the other ground straps on the bottom and top of engine

Bad grounds as suggested. It could also be the battery at fault since resistance is required to tell the regulator what to do. They can do a lot of weird things and still start the bike.

Be sure to post your resolution to this problem. It's a weird one.

It's the regulators job to limit the output of the stator as well as convert it from AC to DC volts. with 18 volts coming out of it I suggest it is the regulator at fault here. Battery condition does not play a part here.
Batterys routinely go bad. Mine last about 4 years. If battery condition was a factor you would see many posts here regarding this condition.

But he said he replaced the regulator twice and I assume with similiar outcomes??? My bet is a bad ground.

I missed that part. Bad ground would cause a problem.

I really can't see the battery causing this condition but it's an easy swap just to see. I'm sure you've checked and rechecked the connectors and wiring to and from the regulator - um right?

It can happen on newer systems but is rare.A shorted cell can cause an overcharge condition on some newer electronically controlled systems but I don't know it the Vrod is one of them.Even the wrong replacement battery can cause issues with these systems.Try a google search
