what voltage should you replace your battery? i have an 08dxa which is reading 12.63 when bike is off. i have been getting codes & my tach. light flickers on/off periodically. some of the codes are a low & also high voltage output???? when i get a chance i'll post the codes.

Your battery is reading fully charged. The high and low voltage output may be the regulator "switching", check the voltage with the engine running. Should be around 14 and very constant, it will vary with load but smoothly and not jump around. First thing on a Vrod is to check connections. ie loose or poor grounds, plugs not fully seated etc.

:them: check the easy stuff first. Otherwise it sounds like the regulator.

cool, thanx guys...i was gunna check the voltage while it was running but buttoned it up cause a young wounded MARINE was making his way home from BATHESDA NAVAL HOSP. the ST. POLICE gave him a surprise escort home so me & apprx. 60+ bikes joined in. it was hart felt. lot of emotions swirling around in my head. while on the way home the tach. flickered once & the engine & battery light stayed on for apprx. 5 min. then went off. bike didn't birp though. before i left i did check the battery conn. & it was solid so ??? it's under extended warranty, i hope they take care of it.

I think Gunny is pissing on your taillight, and shorting it out.
I know that I'd be pissing myself, if I was riding bitch with you!:D
