voltage gauge low and lights are dimming

I just recently had the votage indicator fluctuate low and back to norm and check eng lite start to come on..
bike runs good thru the twisties still in the rockies...
i checked the battery cables looks tite just seems like when i crank the throttle i get the voltage drop...is this a symtom of a bad voltage regulator??????????? or a stator????????????
i tried pulling up my codes and no blinks...?

any help cool....had to make the school girl run on my other bike because of this

Usually the voltage regulator is either good or bad there is no in between. It sounds like the stator to me.
