Just wanted to update everyone:
Gasket for the left crankcase just came in today, so I put everything back together.
Stator resistance is within spec when cold, so I turned on the bike. the idle voltage was around 12.6V but when the engine is rev'd to 5k RPMs, the battery voltage reads 14.18.
While it was running at one point the idle voltage went up to 14v, but then dropped back down and it hasn't done it since. I didn't touch the bike before, or while this was happening, it just appeared and disappeared on its on. I find this very unusual.
I'm fixing to take the bike for a short ride to see if anything changes after it is up to full operating temp.
As per the service manual, this is what I have checked thus far today;
Battery voltage was at 12.96 before cranking
Battery voltage was at 12.5 just after starting
Current leakage test passes, it is still at 0.03 miliamps (well below the allowable maximum)
stator resistances are all around 0.6 ohms (at the back end of the 3P connector coming from the stator)
voltage @ the R/R measure exactly what the battery does
I'll double check the resistances @ the R/R for the stator but they were the same as at the back of the 3P connector to the best of my knowledge
Thanks for the help that everyone has given thus far!
By the way, the battery tested good from a load test in the past week, and the battery is less then 1 year old. Thanks!
