I think my shifter issue is easily solved.
When it rattled apart, I thought I had   a fix, but the adjustment was off causing the gold hemi joint to hit the shift arm.



At the next stop I adjusted again ( and it seemed to work) but once moving, the indexable arm hit the shaft for the rear brake.



I plan to cut that shaft down and put a hole in it and hold it on with a washer and a cotter pin or R clip.

Perhaps you should move the shifter linkage above the footrest too? Thats how it is supposed to work and there will be less items to avoid.

If the shifter arm is made shorter you will need less travel with the pedal too. Right now you are going from a short arm to a longer so the shifter pedal need to rotate more than the shifter arm for a given movement of the gear shift arm at the gearbox. I suggest to make the shifter srm same length as the arm on the pedal

When I say "shifter arm" I mean the arm attached to the shaft going through the frame from first threaded linkage bar...the one you customized earlier on. Hope its clear

I have been sick lately but I did get the new battery in and cut off the shaft that stuck out. I took it for a quick test ride and it shifter fine, but the throws are too long.  I will look at flipping the linkage but the big problem is that it is really hard to get the bolts that hold the lower subframe to line up and I will have to take them out to flip the indexable arm on the shifter.

Bike starts right up. I still need to verify that the battery is being charges when running.

OK,
tested the bike. at the battery when running I am only seeing 12.2V - about the same as I had before starting. doesn't change with RPM.
there is a red and two yellow wires out of the stator, what I the easy way to test if the problem is my wiring harness or if the stator is bad?

Unless I'm looking at the wrong diagram (definitely possible), then that's a lot fewer wires than I would expect.

I'm seeing three yellows, a blue, a black, and a brown/black?

Here is the diagram I made when I took it apart. all wires and connectors that were on the bike were on this sheet.



But looking at it, I am not sure how the electricity is supposed to get back to the battery.

There should be a red wire leading from the rectifier directly to the positive terminal of the battery.
