Does SC stand for Super Concoction? Special Calibration? Silly Caucasian? Super Computer?

Why does my bike charge different?

(I just remembered that my GS911 reads voltage. Think that is worth looking at as a triple check?)
I'm satisfied that your bike IS charging different as the readings are consistent and the drop in voltage at RPM that even the worst multimeter would pick up isn't there.

As to why? Your regulator is either defective in a pleasing way, or BMW is fielding some test units.

All manufactures secretly do this and none will ever admit it or do anything about it when caught.

Either way, I wouldn't worry about it, because what your regulator is doing is what others should be wishing theirs did :)
