Ok, Iíll follow up on my prior post back in 2016. I still have the original R/R that charges a bit high. Bike is now at 120,000 miles. Nothing bad has happened; entire electrical system works great. I tend to think Guzzi designed it this way and there is nothing to worry about.
Didn't you have to replace several cam position sensors?
When you say charges a bit high, how high?
15.37 v above 3,500 rpm
Thank you.If you would continue to indulge, can you tell me about the battery/batteries?!?
Of course. Data = good. And agreedóthe only potential downside I see from arguable excess voltage is reduced battery life. My batteries always tend to last about 3 to 3.5 years. I think thatís due to the Texas heat and the fact that I ride a lot. So there are a lot of starting cycles per unit time. Iím not sure you can validly compare how long a battery lasts unless you also know how much use it got. 3 years is not unique to my arguably overcharging Guzzi. Had the same experience on a Yamaha FJR, BMW F800S, and Ninja 250. I had a voltmeter on the BMW and it was ďnormalĒ in the sense of providing about 14.7 max volts. Batteries didnít last any longer. I always buy Yuasa batteries. Maybe Iíd get better life from a different brand. Final thought. A weak or failing battery is the source of many woes and heightens unreliability. So I tend to be pretty aggressive about replacing a suspect battery since I figure I avoid a lot of hassle. And Iíve twice had a battery totally and completely fail with almost no warning. I figure one expensive tow service you avoid pays for a lot of batteries!
