Ok I just did the test by placing leads on the battery and I am reading no charge at any rpm. I tested from idle to about 4 or 5 grand. The voltage stayed at about 12-13v and did not change when I shut the bike off.
I did notice that the metal strap that holds the battery in place has snapped off and fell out of the bike, so the battery is free to shake and rattle around. Could this damage the battery? Check my signature for more info about it, I purchased it last summer and had it on a battery tender all winter.
Also, I am not very good with electrics, so if you could tell me where I can find the wires I am supposed to test that would be a huge help. Am I going to have to tear into the engine to do any of these tests?
