The white stuff is oil and moisture. Are you losing any antifreeze?

As far as how the stator looks it's hard to tell from the pic.
What was the AC output with the plug unplugged and the engine running?
Was one of the legs going to ground or did you not have good continuity between the legs?

I just did the resistance check, so I never checked for AC output, since it failed the generator coil resistance test. Should I put it back together and perform the rest of the tests?

EDIT: No loss of antifreeze that I've noticed.

I had something very similar, it was my rectifier. I was riding home and my gauges died, then cut off completely, then my head lights, etc, I was in my neighborhood at this time and it died out about two houses down from me. I would put the battery to charge on a trickle charge, then test it and it would hold a charge, but it would die after about 20 mins of riding.

Okay, so I replaced the rectifier. The old one was indeed bad, and the new one is good. But now the bike has a lot of trouble starting.

I went through the service manual (again) and it suggested that the starter relay is bad. But I didn't think it was, and it's not. The starter relay is fine. I just now managed to get the bike to start, but barely. All connections are good, fuses are good, battery is good, rectifier is good, generator is good, stator is good.

So what now? Is it the starter itself? Or perhaps I need to change some spark plugs? Or what?

These problems are killing me!

Hmmm... nevermind. It seems to have gotten mostly better.
