My 1999 Honda VFR 800 electrical problem?

Hi there,

Wondering if anyone out there has any electrical system skillz and might be able to help with the following issue...

I noticed that when i get on my bike in the morning, the clock is always reset. I had the battery checked they said it is "good".

I bought a multimeter and the battery tests at 12.5 volts with the bike off. If I turn the bike on and let warm p for 5 minutes and turn hi beams on, it tests at 14.0 volts. If I rev the bike to 5,000 rpm the volts drop a little to 13.5-13.8 volts.

Is this all normal?

He has, but he hasn't received a response that has helped yet. I suppose he thought he could get some help here.

Unfortunately, I can't help as I simply have my tech run a voltage test every once in a while.
