Voltmeter pegging 15.5

Never had this problem before. Whether my heated gear is on or off, voltmeter reading 15.5 while at speed -- no change at idle. Got home, turned off bike, then turned on ignition but did not start -- voltmeter went right to 12 even. I'm running the battery tender now --- 15.5 is the highest I've seen. Thoughts? DOOF

Start the bike up and check the voltage at the battey terminals with a multimeter to see if it matches up to the gauge. Check it at idle and at 1500 rpms. If in fact it is 15 plus vdc then you have a bad voltage regulator.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.

+1 on what tmd said. Check with separate meter.

Just back from dealer:
- my VIN did not have the recall
- diagnostics run showed charging system OK
- I have 6 pages of printouts but only understand my name and the date
- at battery checks also OK
- = broken volt gauge in dash
- warranty covered -- they ordered the gauge.
