Potential Charging Issue(s)
So, with the weather finally getting nice enough around here to ride a bit I have begun piling the miles on the 05 DL. I have noticed on my cheapy volt meter mounted in the AdvTech dash that at cruise I usually get around 13.9 to 14.2. Prior to start up I have 11.8 and at a cold idle i get 14.2 to 14.5 every day. Now, when warm at a stop light I notice it drops down to around 12.9. If i let off the brake it climbs back up to 13.9-14.3. If the cooling fan kicks on at a stop light then it drops way back down again. I have found that if i cut one headlight while in town it stays around 14v. My voltmeter is connected to the heated grip connector and thus far the only added electrical doohickey are my LED driving lights. I have them run through the EB PC8 and installed the headlight relay kit from EB as well.
During the off-season I checked my magnets and they are still firmly stuck in place and evenly spaced. I have a brand new battery that I am going to put in it this weekend and ride it to see if that helps. Electrical troubleshooting is not my forte but not afraid to dig in.
