Hello, i am new to this forum, so not sure how to ask a question or start a thread but it is related to Yamaha 2001 XL800 battery issues also. I get a battery alarm beeping and flashing in the gauges, if i charge the battery then it will go sometime ok but then the alarm comes in. The battery has 12v with ski off and also just 12v with ski running.
is it the rectifier/regulator, how do i check before i spend the money and buy it. The fact that the voltage is not increasing when the ski is running tells me that the battery is not charging, am i correct? any ideas are welcome.
I hope i am imposing by adding to this thread, thanks
