While watching the volts on my charging system it seems like the ignition takes more juice than the stator produces at idle.
Does that sound right?
At idle my volt meter cruises under 12 volts. I have to bump the throttle up to get it above 12 volts. And it has to be running at 1/4 throttle or more to get it in the 13.5-14 volt area. It has a new regulator.
Is it normal for the volts to run low when idling?
