Just a note to others relying on Haynes manual accuracy.
My '73 XL250K0 doesn't charge the battery so while trouble shooting I took out the stator windings to inspect and measure resistance properly.
The Haynes book I have (new reprint) says one of the points to measure should be 0.29 ohms.
Mine was measured to 2.29 ohms so I was about to tear into the stator to search faults but by chance I found this thread:
where tuscarawas posted a page from the factory repair manual. It said same measure should be 2.29 ohms.
I was ready to spend a bundle on a new stator/cdi-kit but now I can use it for other stuff more needed.
This is the book I have:
