I have an 86 Shadow 700 that the charging system quit working. I found the connector between the stator and regulator was melted. I tested both the regulator and stator and both were bad. I changed both them out, and installed a new battery (other battery tested bad). About 1000 miles later, the charging system failed again and the connector is melted again. Anyone else ever have this issue?

The connector is a weak spot in the charging system. Many (maybe most) will recommend cutting the connector out and soldering the wires instead. Some will use butt splices.
A new stator and R/R should last a lot more than 1000 miles. What brand did you replace the old ones with?
