If I perform that test with the paper clips, will an armature on the way out give a noticeable drop in the voltage before it actually fails and leaves me stranded? No, usually not.

Is it something you check very often?
No mate, on a need only basis. You get way more problems with pulser coils failing though, especially RFS Katos and CR500s.

Other way round my friend, all WRs are single phase, all EXC Katos, all Shercos, All Betas, etc. TMs are optional single/two phase. Very few dirt bikes under 500cc run three phase alternators.
