I have a 97 Grand touring 700 tripple and the battery keeps going dead. The battery is not old, and should be fine. When I put the voltmeter on it it shows 12.25V, when I start the engine, the voltage drops by about 1/4 volt. I know the voltage should rise to 13.5V with the engine running. After charging the battery, it holds the charge until I start using the sled, then it goes dead by the end of the day. The sled will run fine with a dead battery, and starts manually

Any ideas on this?

Thanks,

Where would I find the voltage regulator on this thing (700 triple) and how do you test it?
