Voltage Too High
I'm checking for an electrical problem. Last night, I started the bike and measured the voltage at the battery posts. At idle, I measured the voltage in the 13v -14v range. Moving off of idle, the voltage readings went up. I didn't break 18v, but I did see 17.9+v.
Can this be anything other than the regulator / rectifier?
Assuming I need a new R/R, is it best to go with the Kawasaki OEM R/R, or get one from another supplier? What is best brand - best price?
Second question: Is it still a good idea to put inline fuses on the three yellow wires from the stator? Does it really help protect the stator? If so, what should be the amp rating on the fuses?
