Post by westy57 »

Bike once again periodically quits charging.Turning off the ignition & restarting fixes it.Anyone have an answer? It's happening more frequently.

When you say quiets charging. Stays at 12.5 or less. Or is at 13-14 volts then stop there. Battery is completely charged. When you restart the bike the charging system is recharging the battery sounds like. Good ground? Cables tight and clean, good battery. And of course the cable think at the alternator. need more info.
