07 sportsman 500 x2 Not charging

Lost power and was over heating while on a ride. Stator connected plug had got fried along with a couple pins on the pdm connector s. So I had pdm rebuilt, put in stator, fixed the fried connectors on the pdm, and needed a new battery ( it was old ), and a new thermostat. Tested stator resistance and running ac volts, they tested good. Tested battery while running and it was getting the correct voltage. I started adding the winch, led light bar, and speaker tube one at a time and tested the voltage after adding each one and everything tested fine. Also checked if the fan would kick on as needed and that tested fine. So everything looking good I take it for a test run. After a few miles it starts acting like it did in the beginning of all this.... flashing hit and check engine... I pull over and test the volts while running and now getting less than 12v while running. I donít know what I could have missed.... help please!!! ( so frustrating). TIA!

What are the numbers? How many volts AC did you measure and was the voltage reading checked open circuit (not connected to the rec/reg), closed circuit (connected to the rec/reg), but not connected to the battery and under load (rec/reg connected to the battery)?
