Where do they go?

I've been having some problems with the battery on my '04 wr450f going flat.

The multimeter reads 14v when the bike is idling (I like a fast idle), but drops when the engine is revved.

Is this normal? Where do my volts go?

sounds like you have a problem with your stator.

Ok,I've just checked out the stator, it's giving a reading of 282 ohms which is within spec, could a short circuit be the problem?:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
