This seems in line with what Joel reported at the beginning of this thread.

I'm starting to think there was an in-line change to the OEM regulator made sometime in the past several years; it looks like the newer bikes are consistantly putting out slightly higher voltages.

I measured a 2012 F800GS just last week, results are buried somewhere in the middle of this thread, but it was pretty much the same as all the older K7X bikes I have measured.

I think we are just seeing inaccuracies of various multimeters except for one outlier which has WAY higher voltages and is stable through all RPM's

Thanks for the data Eurastus.
