Ride: 1997 EL XR8

Location: Northern Beaches, Sydney

The charge light came on last night and is still on. I've checked the altinators output with my multi-meter and its good and the battery is only a couple of months old.
Anyone have any ideas?

Also check the voltage with high beams on and make sure it's still around 14V...

You say the output is "good" what is it? May have lost a couple or half the diodes in the full bridge rectifier and have reduced output...

Cheers,
Tim
