Just read the post again. If you rev the engine like badsanta said and the voltage is dropping a bit then I would take a good look at the wiring first and connect the RR directly to the battery see what happens.

You can test the RR and the alternator but for go cheap and easy. Check the wiring and connections first. Connect the pos and neg from the RR directly to the battery and see what it's putting out then (they do a better job that way. Do a load test on the battery (fully charged) by putting your meter...

Re: FOR SALE KAWASAKI KLR 650

Fantastic bike! I have one of these with over 70K miles on it and nothing wrong with it at all.
Will be a good buy for someone. I would if I had the spare cash.

Good luck with the sale.

Re: Travel Tool Kit

I like to keep a few crimped connectors too for dodgy connections but my bike is 20 odd yrs old.
