    With the engine running, see if your charging, well into the 13 volt area is what your looking for.
    When testing the charging system after replacing the stator (to ensure it was working) my multimeter was reading just above 14v off of the terminals when the bike was running. Before when the failed stator was on the bike it wouldn't even go above 12.8 when the battery was installed immediately after being fully charged on a trickle charger.

    Just double checked it last night as well, and when bike is running voltage is just barely above 14v.

    That's more than mine EVER put out.

    Your charging system is fine...

    Picked the bike up from the dealership after the recall work was completed for replacing the TPS, everything seems to be back to normal! When I rode over this morning to drop it off it was acting up the whole ride there, felt like the throttle bodies kept opening and closing as it was doing before, making it look like I was constantly manipulating the throttle, even though my hand was steady.

    Anyhow, picked it up this afternoon and did not notice any jerkiness, or anything at all. It's only a 5 mile ride or so to the dealer so post up if it was somehow a fluke and starts acting up again, but I think the issue is resolved!

    Thanks for everyone's input, much appreciated!
