Mmoto Posted January 15 Share Posted January 15 (edited) Greetings! I have a 79’ GS1000 with a new Yuasa battery, Dyna ignition and coils. It runs perfectly but I recently tested the charging system and the volts seem to be low at idle. At idle with the headlight fuse removed it is 12.5+ volts, with no throttle applied it will slowly raise to 12.57 12.58 12.59. When the headlight fuse is replaced the volts drop to 12.38 and will slowly decrease to 12.37 12.36 12.35. With throttle applied the volts will increase and nearly reach 13v. The diodes have been tested and all test good with continuity only in one direction. The AC volts from the stator are 40v+ and increase with throttle to 50+ I’m afraid the battery will deplete if the bike sits at idle for too long and not replenish its volts. I’m thinking about installing low draw LED headlight and taillight bulbs. Thoughts? Thank you! Edited January 15 by Mmoto Typo Quote Link to comment
