83 750 Charging System
OK quick background is my battery was not charging and after a little troubleshooting, I found that the Stator was shorted to ground. So I replaced the Stator coil, my battery was also fried so I upgraded to a lithuim battery.
Started the bike and upon first check it was reading 14.4V at idle. I thought that was pretty good for still using the stock R/R.
Took it for a 30 min ride yesterday and when I got home pulled my DVM out to check it againg before shutting if off. It was now reading 15.3VDC at idle. Interestingly, I found the voltage increases with load. So with no lights on the voltage went down to 15.0V and goes up when the headlight it on. It does not change with RPM increase.
My first suspicion would be the R/R but I never have heard of one doing this before. Any thoughts?
