Lithium Iron Battery (Shorai) on 2001 Bonnie and multimeter readings
I have a 2001 Bonnie and I just added a Shorai Lithium Iron (not Ion) battery.
I was curious about multimeter readings--maybe they run different when the LiFE Battery is introduced.
Resting (engine not running) the battery tests out at 12.89 UPDATE. Resting Battery was, with key not in ignition, 13.25.
Engine Running , revving 2000 the battery tests at about 13.5 to 13.8
Are these readings showing everything to be working properly? Another user had similar readings with LiFE Shorai battery. I've run the test 2x and gotten the same readings on different days. This leads me to believe that everything's working fine.
Part of me wants to see something higher with engine running (14?) If something's abnormal, I'm guessing I'm into R and R problems. My bikes 18 years old......that said perhaps the readings I gave are perfectly fine for a 2001 w/ LiFE.
