Bad voltage regulator on 2018 FLTRU
I was on an overnight trip last weekend and towards the end of the first day I noticed the volt meter was reading higher than normal, around 15 volts. Thought that was strange but didn't have any other problems and was 350 miles from home but only 50 miles from our hotel for the night so I pressed on.
Bike was fine on the way to dinner that night too except for the higher than normal voltage reading. Well, the next morning when I started the bike the radio screen, indicator lights on the gauges, and the gauge back lights all started flashing on and off and the volt meter was swinging between 13 and 16 volts and when it got to 16 that's when the radio and such turned off.
It was 6am on a Sunday and the motor was running fine so I hopped on and rode home. All the main lights worked fine, but the cruise would kick off every time the volt meter swung up to 16. By the time I got home the volt meter stayed pegged at 16 volts unless I let the engine idle.
Called the dealer and had them pick the bike up and they said it's the voltage regulator, which was what I guessed. I bought the bike new in December and it's only got 7k on it. Pretty disappointed but shit happens I guess. Wanted to share this in case anyone with a bike out of warranty experiences these symptoms so they have an idea of what to check first.
