Voltage Reading

Question for Fix My Hog Hello, Have been riding the bike for the past two years and volt meter in dash always reads 13.5V at speed, tried a digital voltmeter which read 13.5V. Tested stator leads 0.1ohm, tested stator leads to ground, both infinite. Installed new battery and a Cycle Electric 48amp regulator/rectifier. Voltage still at 13.5V. Should be reading 14.5. Could stator or rotor both be weak?

Fix My Hog Answers Really not common to see an Evo with a charging output any higher than 14.20. 13.50 VDC should be sufficient. Don’t neglect to test your stator’s AC output. It should read 20 VAC per 1k RPM.
