I'm getting only 12.0 voltage reading on my battery after it sits a day after riding. I'm thinking this is a little low. Anyone know what the charge should be?

I have a voltmeter tied into the batery - when i turn the ignition on it goes to 12/12.1

When i fire up the bike it goes to 13/13.5 as i ride in the 13.9/14.1 range.

Note that a voltage reading is good/ok, but you need to actually load the battery to see if it is weak.

If you are getting 12 volts when it is running you may have a problem with the circuitry.

I'll answer my own question after going to the battery shop. The agm battery should show 12.6 volts at rest . This would indicate a full charge, according to the battery shop.
