charging on the bonnie

Post by Diggerdigzit » Fri Feb 08, 2008 6:27 pm

hi all,
i took my 78 T140 b9onnie to the auto electrician and he has said the bike is - if anything - overcharging until the light is on then it drops off or back to 13 volts.

Any ideas.

Cheers

Rip out all the original wiring, zd's, coils & start again & have a more reliable set up installed.
