will just throw this in there for info:

NEVER count on the battery you buy being 'new'.. ALWAYS check the date code on the battery.

I have personally bought a battery 'new' from a large store that moves lots of them.. date code was 8 months or a year old.. said battery died when the stator died in my bike, went to same store, same battery make/model (agm) and check date code on it before walking out of the store.. it was OLDER than the one I was replacing!!! me and clerk ended up searching thru entire stock of batteries (about 6 I think) to find one that was even sorta recent manufacture date

Just an update as promised. I slapped on new R/R and it fired up so much faster and easier. Tad over 14V at idle and tad over 15V on anything else such as a rev. Think it’s safe to say problem solved. Thanks for the help everyone.
