Your battery will probably last longer being charged at 13.5 volts than 14.0+ volts.

My '02 FZ1 original battery lasted ~8 years and I never saw 14.0+ volts at the battery terminals (typical peak was ~13.7 volts DC).

Aaaaannnnnnd were onto another issue...........

**** it, I'll answer for him..........Marchesini cush drive has now come apart in rear wheel. I not only feel sick but obligated to hunt parts. If you have cush drive parts, which may be the same, send them or speakup. I am totally wiped out how our hero has taken this bike and found all Iits flaws. Apparently I am a wuss and cant subject it to his punishment.

Excuse all language and tone, I am peeved just knowing he's having problems. I never wanted this.

Cush drive ordered, it's only money. Maybe they will have it in the US and I won't have to wait until the Italians come back to work for 1 week before Christmas. Believe it or not, Marchesini recommends replacing every 2 years or 9300 miles, I'll have to find a Japanese equivalent.

This is what it looked like when I pulled the sprocket off, half the cush was missing.


This is what it looked like on the wheel after a 20 mile drive. It was the consistency of pencil eraser residue.

Take those pucks and flip them to the other side, good as new!

Seriously though, it looks like OPP racing out of San Francisco may have some. The ship window is 1-12 weeks though, call ahead and see if they stock them.

Since I'm not an EE, it's not my "field" - just curious. Thanks...
Yep, at some rate, between 4 and 5k on our bikes, the prescribed saturation curve limits output, which is why it doesn't increase up to redline. It should also always be under full load via the R/R, which sinks and dissipates the excess power when the battery is near or fully charged. Even with that, there are current and voltage fluctuations. The voltmeter on my MG swings a few tenths while steady cruising, probably from the AC output variances.

Holy crap, Brian - if you didn't have bad luck, you'd have no luck at all!!!!

(for those not following along, the stator in my old Gen II exploded I think the same week we traded!!)

Yeah, it seems to come in waves. It looks like the newer version of the cush drive is just like the Japanese bikes. These feel like blocks of candle wax, which explains why, when I first brought the bike home, I thought it was wax from the chain on the wheel. I should have been clued in by the guy that swapped the tires telling me the cush drive was made into the wheel and he couldn't get it off. That waxy build up had bonded the two pieces together, it had to be heated with a heat gun and tapped apart from the back of the sprocket. Very odd. I ordered a Matris shock from PJ, so I'll pull the old one off and swap on the single exit exhaust at the same time for added foot room.
