R.P.M. Readings = Voltage Readings

I took a suggestion and took voltage readings a differant R.P.M.
Here are the results to see if I have a charging Electrical System
I have a 1995 VN730A11


2000 RPM= 11.94 Volts
3000 RPM= 11.95 Volts
4000 RPM=11.97 Volts
5000 RPM= 11.98 Volts
6000 RPM= 11.99 Volts

Any Suggenstion as to how my charging system is doing???

I also went toAutoZone and bought a new Battery... The kind that you need to fill it up with the Acid provided and put in the hole plug strip. strip

Thanks all

..

I confirm, you do not have a charging electrical system. A new MF battery will be great, but you need to check your r/r and stator, too. It could just be that the battery won't take a charge, but it could be that the system isn't charging, too. Hate to see you buy a new bat and have the same problems.

It's what changes the stator volts from AC to DC and limits the amount of charge going into the battery.

As for the battery..... does it have the vent tube that must be attached, or is it vent tube free?
Some maintenance free batteries need filled when first purchased, but aren't wet cell's (as long as there's no vent tube).

Have the battery (whatever kind it is) load tested at an auto parts store.

If you had to add the electrolyte to the battery, you will need to charge it before you use it to get the maximum out of it. A slow charge is better than a fast charge and the charge rate shouldn't be above 2 amps.
I agree with the rest here that you may have a fried R/R. Check the stator too as once the R/R goes, it usually takes the stator with it.
