Gauge issues....what does your bike do?
I have two odd factory gauge issues.
The first, is that my voltmeter doesn't "shut off" when the bike is off. It still shows battery voltage, and from what I understand it should shut off with the ignition. The concern with this, is that I've had to replace my main battery about every two years since new, and I'm wondering if this full time draw is why.
The second issue, is that my air temp gauge is reading way too high. When I shut the bike off, it also doesn't seem to turn off fully. It's only dropping to 40 degrees, and then when I turn the bike on it jumps to about 110 (which is the matching "change" compared to air temp outside). It's acting as if it's zeroing at 40 degrees.
Now of course you don't really pay attention to this stuff till something is wrong....so I'm not sure now if both of those gauges were supposed to drop to zero with the bike off. My volt gauge has always stayed on, the temp gauge just started this (I know, I know, nobody likes them anyway).
Just curious to hear what other people's bikes do when the ignition is turned off, and any other thoughts.
