I checked the charging system and its working. putting out 14.5 volts at the battery when the motor is running and brought to around 2000 or so RPM.
But then after letting the bike sit for 15 minutes after going for a ride, I put the key switch to accessory to kick it over and it didn't start right away. No biggie, it was 3 kicks. So i turned the key back to off and checked the voltage in the off position a few minutes later. Down to 10 volts. While the charging system is putting out voltage and the bike starts fine when i first take it off of the trickle charger, it looks like the battery is holding the charge.
new battery time. Oh and Walter, let me know if you wanna head to BK Thursday night!
