Question Update on my problem

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=53555

O.k. for those that remember. ^^^ Now my bike's battery is holding a charge for days and days, but when I test it with a volt meter, the volts read about 12.5 when the bike is off and about 12.0 while it is running. I made a whole trackday last weekend, and it has ran perfectly since, but the voltage has me a little. It's like the charging system is just doing a half-azz job. I figured it would either work correctly, or not all. What could be the problem? I don't want to get stranded anywhere, or am I just being a worry wort?

This will probably get moved to the Tech section anyway, but here's my $.02.

You may not have a problem, but sometimes the RR can go out without any warning or even by giving any symptoms. Additionally, some bike's RRs will not give a charge until a voltage drop is noticed.

Most likely though, you are having a charging problem if you're using your meter correctly. It almost sounds like there is a voltage draw somewhere in your bike that is causing the disparity in the readings you're getting.

Did you replace your battery? Of course, even if you bought a new battery, the bike shouldn't run for "days and days" if the system isn't charging at all.

Sounds like it's a good time to take your bike to Motorcycles Unlimited and have it looked at by Patrick's crew. Usually, he doesn't even charge to diagnose a problem for you.
