ok, Yet another stator question....
I know batteries can play a role in low voltage readings while riding (even if the charging system is good) so I just put in a new battery, unfortunately that was before reading much here and I did not get a sealed battery.... But anyway it is new... I have been charging it nightly with a 1.5 amp maintain trickle charger (also reading that that may be to high in amps??). Anyway I have read that Regulator failure ends up over charging the batt and leads to over voltage. I am seeing low voltage when running.
10-11 idle hot with fan and brake light on.
11-12 idle to low rpms without fan or brake light
12-13 when riding 65-70 (never get up to 12 below like 60mph)
When I get back home the battery generally needs some charge. It does start up pretty good all the time, even with the old battery. I only changed it because of the low voltage readings.
So can the regulator cause this? new stock type battery? or is a weak stator the cause?
(oh and removing the goat's belly and probably moving the Regulator are next on the list after some reading around here... )
