I have yet to see any pipe manu make a NON sparky pipe for like 40 years. No one would buy it if it isn't an MX bike.......I think even now a sparky is mandatory even for race bikes in most states.

Didn't read all this but have you checked with a VOM at the battery to see what kind of voltage it does whilst at 2K rpm and 3K rpm? If it is 13.8 or a tad higher, then everything is good.
