Just wondering if anyone else is running one in place of the rectifier and zener. My current set up is a Lucas stator/alternator, boyer electric ignition with box, voltage regulator and brand new wiring and battery. With the bike running and a meter on the batt it reads about 12.4 volts. Then giving it throttle it reads about 12.8 volts and doesn't rise to 13 and 14 volts. If I turn on the lights the batt reads 12.2 volts and with throttle only goes to 12.5 volts. Is this right? I'm not convinced the bike is trouble free. I called the guy at Fairspares where I bought the VR from and he told me because the batt is new it might not need to charge that high on the meter. I have searched the web for an answer but nothing found.
