key off 12.5
key on [button pushed] 12.5
motor running 14.6
apparently, I miss understood your question...
the battery voltage with switch off 'is' 12.5 volts
with switch on 'is 12.5 volts
with motor running 'is' between 14.5 and 14.7
how are these reading "impossible"...were you not wanting the battery's voltage readings?
what is VDC, isn't VDC readings the battery's voltage readings...I put BLACK meter lead on battery's NEGATIVE terminal, RED meter lead on battery's POSITIVE terminal...
again, with key 'off' the battery's voltage reads around 12.5v
with key 'on' the battery's voltage reads around 12.5v
with button pushed, it might have dropped to 12v
dude I've given you the readings several times
you keep asking continuously for what I've already given you
actually, after doing test again, I'm getting 12.5v switch off...switch on it drops to around 11/11.5v...and when I push button, it does drop down to around 10v...
my apologies to Andre...
can relay be tested 'off' bike...
also, the plug on end of wires that go to relay looks messed up [corroded, and one terminal on plug even looks cracked]...
here is a pic of it, don't know how well you'll be able to see what I'm talking about though
I took relay and unplugged it...then followed service manual's directions for testing relay...[took battery leads and connected them to the 85 and 86 terminals on relay to energize relay...then tested for continuity between terminals 30 and 87 which there was - there was a zero ohm reading]...service manual said that if no continuity, relay is bad...so according to manual relay is good...
the battery is new, and probably low reading due to my messing around with it [just my guess]
I'll go ahead and get new relay though, and change plug...how do you change plug
