charging system problems from a newbie
Im the new guy here and am having the same electrical problems as others. My battery keeps running down. When I charge the battery it goes to 13.4 volts then rests at 13.2 volts.
The battery is a new gel battery and holds the charge.
When I run the bike it performs great... its' just that I seem to be using (running) off the battery and not making up the charge through the charging system.
I have done a few tests and will share them with you.
I did the stator test and got these results:
Ohm test: a1 = 0 a1 to a2 = 0
a2 = 0 a1 to a3 = 0
a3 = 0 a2 to a3 = 0
At 2500 rpm the voltage was
a1 to a2 = 41.7
a1 to a3 = 44
a2 to a3 = 44
I then reconnected the r/r and measured the voltage out of the r/r. It was 14.7 volts at 2500rpm.
Then I checked across the battery and got only 12.6 volts.
I then pulled the 2 light fuses and got 14.08 volts across the battery.
I don't know what to do from here. Any suggestions on what to look at next? I have moved the r/r and done thee blue wire mod.
