Won't start after 30 minute ride
So I just picked up an '04 with 11k miles. One owner. All stock except pipe and PCV. No damage at all.
Picked it up, rode 10 minutes, stopped at store, fired up fine.
Rode stop and go for 20 more minutes WITH HIGH BEAMS ON, stopped for gas and she wouldn't start. Turned over very slow but just not enough juice to crank.
Jumped it and got home. Put on trickle charger and the battery appeared to charge to "green" with 12.7 or so volts. Battery was replaced about 1 1/2 years ago (owner gave me receipt).
Only testing so far is voltage as follows (after full trickle charge and fully warmed up ):
Idle with high beam OFF: 14.3-14.6 volts
Idle with high beam ON: 13.0-13.4
4,000-5,000 rpm's: 14.3-14.6
I read a few posts about this happening. Plan on removing all fairings and detailing bike. At that time I plan on pulling the regulator and testing, pull all connectors and lube, etc.
Thinking it's the regulator or stator.
