I am not sure that this has anything to do with your problem, but you are making assumptions and that can be dangerous when diagnosing faults.On 2007-01-02 23:24, Singlefin wrote:
The bike has been on a Battery Tender, so I am sure there is 12 volts at the battery.
I am concerned that my issue may be in the charging system. I'll check that with a voltmeter.
Check the fluid level in the battery.
These bikes tend to be a bit thirsty on battery fluid normally, and if it has been on the battery tender for any length of time, it may have dried it up a bit too.
Check the charging voltage with the revs above 3k rpm.
Check the battery voltage when starting.
Get back to us with your findings.
