4-stroke electrical issue

Recommended Posts

The bike is a 2002 Honda Nighthawk 250.

Right now, nothing has power when you turn the key on. No electric start, so you compression start it and it gets running. Now the lights/horn/neutral & sidestand lights, etc work, dimmly & flickering, you can tell they're just running off the magnito. Sounds like a dead battery right? Battery measures 11-12 volts. What does this mean? Bad voltage regulator?

As soon as I measured the battery volts and saw it was good, thought voltage regulator, I remembered the bike did something weird the other day that made me think "maybe the voltage regulator is going out" but I can't remember what that was that it did, lol.
