My battery has started discharging while the engine is running (battery is new), I checked the voltage with the battery fully charged just after starting the bike and it reads as much as 14.5 volts during the first ~30 seconds that the bike is running (regardless of RPM), then drops to 12.5 volts, and then does not vary with RPM. I stopped and started the bike several times and the voltage followed the same pattern. Does this point to a bad regulator?

If you haven't already fixed this the problem is most likely the stator. I had the same problem, I had the stator replaced and it ran like new.
