ok here it goes.
My cb starts and runs for about 20 to 30 minutes. Then the headlight starts dimming and it dies. I charged the battery and stated it. Im getting less than 13v at the battery when its running. I checked the ohms of the stator and field coil and they seem ok. Then load tested the battery. Again ok. How do I check a voltage regulator? This bike was the victim of an electrical fire. I rewired it and its correct. Any help at all would be appreciated.

Fuel wont make the lights dim.
its a mechanical regulator, should be able to take it apart and check contacts. If bike has been in a fire them could easily be stuck.
probably best thing to do is start saving for a solid state reg/rect.
