Hi Everyone, its been a while since I posted last...good to be back! I searched the forum for nearly an hour before posting this thread because I thought the answer would be out there! After my winter rebuild project I am back on the road with my 93' L and commuting every day, plus some trail riding on the weekends. I bought a new battery after the project because the dealer said the old one was 'kaput'...but, after riding the bike for about a week back and forth to work, I notice that the battery slowly loses charge and eventually wont turn the motor at all. I then put it on the trickle charger over night and whalla it goes well for about another week or two. Therefore, I believe that when the bike is running, it is not putting any charge back to the battery, hence the battery is slowly dying. Could this be the regulator/rectifyer, the stator, the alternator...also if anyone could give me a brief idea of what each of these things do I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again in advance!!!!
