I just changed the stator and the rectifier/regulator in this bike. Put the battery on a charge yesterday and it read 11.03v. Put it in the bike this morning and it barelyread 10v. Used a test light and the stator and r/r is working. Wondering if the battery is just to dead to keep the bike running because it is spitting really bad and when I let off the throttle it dies. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks

I have the same problem IF your bike has taken a spill on the left side then it might be the fly wheel. I taking my bike to the honda shop Saturday and will let you know what I find out.
