Well, the bike keeps blowing up batteries. Tested the charging system and it's jumping to 19 (from 12-14 while off) ..unsure if that's too much. I didn't see an incremental rise as I twisted the throttle, but who knows if that means anything.

Any advice?

Symptoms: the battery smells like rotten eggs after riding. The past 3 batteries have failed. Two by high pitched whistling steam from the sealed battery.

Version confirmed this is overcharging. Searching for regulator rectifier

Cheapest I could find was $145 at PartsZilla:
31600-KTB-771 RECTIFIER, REGULATOR

Also popped my bulbs, so those ran $23 each :dubious:

Hoping this fixes the problem :snorkel:

mmmm. cheesecake.

I used to go through rectifiers on my GY6 like crazy. It got to the point where I have a spare on hand just in case. I think I got a couple of duds though since the latest one I've had for a while with no problems. Of course GY6 rectifiers are not "genuine honda parts" and not nearly that much money. I hope it fixed it.

Well, I think it fixed one issue and created another. Bike voltage measures good now, but the temp light comes on (while the left blinker winks out.)

Figured I'd change the oil, but was thrown off by the 1 inch dipstick :dubious:

Spent half an hour looking for my manual them searching TR for a how-to but couldn't find a thing. Totally wasted all my garage time today :headbashing:
