600 sportsman over charging

Just had voltage regulator replaced, it is delivering 17.5 volts to battery, is very hot and stops working, also bike seems to run just a little smoother when I disconnect. THe shop keeps trying stuff but keeps costing more and more and cant figure it out.

there are only 2 components in the charging system...the stator and volt reg...have to test the stator to see if it is with in specs....I forget what the Ohm readings are off the leads plugs....if that reads ok then the reg may be defective....the stator gives off AC an the reg converts to DC ,,

the specs are in the shop manual and also the test procedure....
