Ok so I traded my 08 FXDL for a 08 FLTR about 3-4 months ago, love them both. When leaving work this morning a buddy said he thought heard something rattling while it was idling. I heard no such noise so I rode on home about 15 miles or so and everything seemed to be normal. This afternoon I jump on the bike to head off to work and was about a mile away from the house when I noticed the volts gauge was low around 11ish. I know they are indicators and not a precise piece of equipment but when I seen this I noticed the eng light and batt light was steady on. I turned around and went back home and parked it. Pulled out the car and got back on the bike to park it in the garage and when I started it up the lights were out now but the gauge was still low around 12. I didn't have to run any checks on anything yet but I am just wanting to make sure I am on the right track. 1. Battery connections possible load testing at autozone. 2. Pull Derby cover and sniff around/check stator output. 3. Verify proper voltage on non stator side of regulator/no voltage bleed back through regulator. The bike has almost 24,000 on the clock. I am pretty sure it still has the factory installed battery. If the battery checks out it seems a little early to me that either the stator or regulator has gone or is going out. Is there anything else in the encylopedia of knowledge here that I should be checking? Any thoughts, comments, suggestions are more than welcome and appreciated.
