Default In Tulsa OK with a bad charging system

Trying to do 6,000 miles in 6 days and lost my charging system Northeast of Tulsa on I-44. Made it to Tulsa.

Issue is intermittent so I suspect regulator is giving up.

Anyone in Tulsa with a spare regulator for an 06 Sporty?

Update - put regulator in and still not working. Picking up a multi meter to start doing more tests but not looking good.

Sorry to hear that Chris.
Bad stator is more common I am afraid. Test each lead to ground.
When they fry they short to ground. AC output may look OK but
if shorted to ground it will not charge.
