kanuck69 The manual is also not figuring on a Mosfet R&R. It's basing it on the old Shunt style. I wouls have to guess depending on the Mosfet R&R you buy, you could get different readings.

The popular FH012 seems to give a good 14 v reading however the one I bought used on Ebay FH001 came off an 06 Yamaha Road Star XV1700. I figured if it was good enought to handle the electrical system of a 1700, I should be good. And I am. No complaints.

slimvulcanrider cars, 13.5 is decent, its actually closer to 14.5 on computer controlled cars where the electrical system needs more juice... the Kawasaki mnaual says that the R/R should put of 14.5 volts at 5,000 rpm.. that is where we get the 14.0~14.5 volts from for determining if the stator/r/r is working or not

kanuck69 What most folks have done to pick up extra wattage is to change out bulbs to LED. You can pick up some watts there. I even went with a HID conversion so I'm using 35w instead of 55 for the head light.

I seem to remember the usable wattage for the bike was around 70 watts though.
Since my mosfet was installed I'm running a strong 13.5 with everything on (execpt running lights) at idle. Radio included.
The running lights are not an issue when I'm riding & it goes down to about 13v at idle.

Mosfet is in and I have 14v at idle and 14.5 at 5k
Thanks for all of the help guys!
Seen this statement from a member on here and have some questions maybe someone can clear up for me.

#1. I was always taught ( in a technical school) that 13 volts to 13.5 volts was normal charge to the battery. 14 to 14.5 seems a tad HIGH. Has anyone here checked to see if their battery is HOT to the touch after shutting the bike down? Over charging has bad effects on some batteries.

#2. Does the Mosfet change allow more wattage to be used for optional items on the bike. If im not mistaken, i think i read somewhere in the forum that 90 Watts was the max usage allowed.

Please Chime In !
