I would think that was pretty good.  Id guess and say anything between 13.1 and 14.5 between idle and 4000 rpm would be plenty.  What usually happens is the regulators fail and the voltages spike and burn out the head lights.. and depending on what year your outlaw is, it can result in replacing 2 bulbs at $25 each....

If your stator is putting out the right voltage it is charging. likely the rectifier or the wires going to or from the rectifier are shot.

It could also be bad grounds/connections.  High resistance in the circuit, such as corrosion, bad connections, dirt, broken wires, etc... can limit the current, like a kink in a garden hose.  The system may be showing the proper voltage while at rest because there is no load, but as soon as you put a load on the system (such as the starter) the resistance doesn't allow the necessary current for the starter to do its work.

Im going to go threw everything but try those parts first, it is the origianil starter 2007. the battery was 2011 so there maybe something i need to deal with. i did have to replace the entire wire harness at one point.
