    04 RXP 12volt low

    Went riding at Lake Elsinor yesterday(So. Calif.) 75 degrees ,clear skies. Dead of winter.Gotta love it!! Anyways 12volt low message came on. I keep a Battery Tender on when not riding. After I took it off and it sat for a while my little digital volt meter said 12.8. It started fine all day. Battery is stock, about 2 years old (original replaced under warranty after 11 months) After I got home it said 12.3 volts. The last 2 times it started it seemed a little sluggish starting. I'm thinkin new battery. What's the hot tip, Riva Racing, Odessey??? Ski has stage 1, 182 hours. Phil

    test voltage when running if it stays at 12.3 then the regulator may be faulty, they usually run around 14-14.5 volts running.

    Odessey sealed, that eliminates 1 of the vent tubes and the worry of batt. leakage problems. but on the flip side I've seen them go bad too. I have an '04 RXP, I would have choosen an Odessey batt. but I was in a rush to get going .........
