Charging System

SAFETY FIRST: Protective gloves and eyewear are recommended at this point.

You will need a digital multimeter to inspect the charging system. Check for loose or corroded connections as you inspect the charging system. If your charging system is having problems complete the following inspection tests from top to bottom.




Battery Voltage

Remove the seat. See the Seat topic for more information.

Set the multimeter to read voltage and connect the probes to their respected terminals. The battery should read 13.0 – 13.2 V when fully charged. If the battery reads under 12.3 V it is undercharged.

Current Leakage

Set the multimeter to read amperage.

Loosen the negative battery cable screw with a #2 Phillips head screwdriver. Remove the screw and disconnect the cable from the battery.
