    With that much effort (and cost), some would suggest converting the whole bike to 12v DC.
    Requires a new stator of course, but the wiring would be simplified.

    P.S. for my bike I'll likely do something similar as you

    Oh, and thanks for confirming that you cannot trust anything the Chinese publish, even when it should make sense.

    Everything I've read on the subject over the years is as Dan said: around 14.7v is considered "normal". As such, your 15.1v seems close to spot on, the 16.8v a bit high, and the 10.6v (to quote Monty Python) appears to be "right out".

    My wife captured me going by wearing the Keens while panning her camera. I like!

    Not that it matters for your project, but I found these guys recently and might be a good source for custom gas tanks for somebody else:

    157QMJ long case here and 12" tires too (to be replaced with 13" wheels over the winter).
    On my scooter I use an 842 Gates belt as PG has suggested.

    Just scored some free GIVI E21 Monokey side boxes on Craigslist (yes, it does occasionally happen!).
    As such, I have decided to make some changes to the overall scheme over the winter. Here's what I'm planning:
    Paint 13" rear wheel yellow (done) -- mount 140/60-13 Kenda K761 dual sportPaint 13" front wheel yellow -- mount 130/60-13 Kenda K761 dual sportPaint front fender blackPaint GIVI side box tops yellowPaint muffler black wrap 23mm ID SS header in black header tape (not shown in sketch)

    Lots of "if thens" that's for sure! May have trouble scaling up to a dozen teams at once.

    Just a few days ago here in Boston there was a scooter for free on Craiglist -- "please come and take it" stated the ad (now gone). I have several bookmarked Craigslist searches for different nearby cities. A free ad like this is unusual even for the Boston area, but if you keep a vigilant watch on things a few times per week, eventually some deal will show up. But you need to be quick.
