Mike. Check the battery after you take off the tender. It should read 12.8 to 13.1 to still be holding a charge. Also you can check if you have a power draw pretty easy. using a 12v light. Disconnect the ground wire first to the battery. Connect the tester clip to the terminal. Then put the point to the battery - post. If the light goes on it means you have a draw. Do it the same way for the + side too. If you want to rule out the stator, cdi and regulator rectifier? Let me know because I have good spares you can try out. Ben

I didn't get any video from Saturday. We were doing some fun climbs and descents, all within a couple of miles of camp.

Charlie & company were great hosts!

Tim and Jim
Thanks for coming out - great weekend for riding. I didn't get many pics but will post up a couple as soon as I get them down loaded from the camera. Next time we should explore more toward the north, lots of great riding in and around that area.
You can ride further in an hour, then you can walk in a DAY!
