Checking out your bike's charging system

The two videos show how to check out the charging system on your bike and see if your bike has a battery drain when the key is turned off.

If the bikes charging system is not working properly the battery will be discharged while riding. Using the volt meter check that the charging system output voltage is 13.6V-14.4V at ~2000rpm. See the video for procedure instruction to test your charging system.

If the bike sits for long periods of time it can drain the battery from the bikes electrical parasitic draw. See the video to measure key off draw.
