    I’m not aware of anyone who did that surgery... I guess you’ve to talk with an engineer who knows both models in depth.

    You may also have a look in service manuals but it will not be an easy task.

    I bet your problem is battery or kill switch or side stand switch related.

    Initially check the battery status and that the battery terminals are firmly connected.

    If you’re replacing your AGM battery at 12.74V or little lower you’re wasting your money. 12.74V means that it can keep more than 80% of its named capacity unless a load test tell us something...

    A reason that I don’t like this kind of monitoring, it can hide you precious detail. A permanently installed voltmeter will give you a much clearer picture of the charging system and battery status.

    The optimal charging voltage for an AGM battery is 14.4V. 15.1 V is within Honda’s spec for their R/R when the engine is warmed and at about 5,000 rpm but it’s unusual to see it. The highest I’ve...

    With the maximum output at 5,000 RPM (there’s no difference here with other bikes) we may suppose almost safely that we have a lower output but we ignore what are the specs of the generator. We can’t...

    Yes you’re right, but anyway a bike like that is too heavy to try it at least for me (my weight is barely 60Kg. Featherweight category :D)

    Our tiny batteries never have the expected lifetime (depends on your region's climate) when such parasitic drain exists unless you replenish the lost charge with a maintainer all the time.
