Dead Battery Blues

Recommended Posts

I replaced my gel cell battery because it was not holding a charge, and this caused me to bring her home in the back of a pickup. My bike is a 2001E model fitted with a street lighting kit. Now the new battery is going dead. To me it points to a charging system problem. Hooked up my test meter and the best reading while the bike is revving is 11.8 volts. Does this reading tell me that the stator is toast, or is there another area that needs to be looked at, before i purchase a replacement part? I think a kickstart kit is in my future. Thanks in advance. Mitch
