Now I was riding home today and on the last leg of my journey my bikes speedometer jumped around, odometer went out, so I decided to try and make it home. But i was losing electrical power to run the fuel pumps and light were dimming. Battery died. I jumped it off so I could take the volts from the electrical system and when running i was getting 13.10 to 13.60 volts. Does it sound like the Battery Old, Stator or something crazy.

Dove into diagnosing the charging system following the info on the wiki page. Battery off and during start up tested out good. Testing the rectifier resulted in no fluctuation in voltage during engine revving. BAD. Went ahead and tested the stator for good measure. Equal readings across all pin combinations. GOOD. Have a heavy duty rectifier on the way. Hopefully this will clear up any future issues.
