    I've a similar problem. Battery fully charged, rode it a while stopped it - wouldn't start voltage down to 11.6. Jump started it to get home (short ride) following morning no problems voltage about 12.6 fire up immediately. It's done this a few times before, sometimes during a really long ride. Comments appreciated.

    How old is the battery and when you are on you long rides what accessories do you have connected?

    The three possible options are,
    The charging system is failing. Unlikely.
    The battery is failing. Possible probably age dependant.
    When you are on your long rides you have to many electrical accessories connected and are drawing more from the battery than the charging system can replace.

    Hi Jedi, the battery is Oct 2019. I'd charged it up a couple of days before as the bike hadn't been ridden for a month.
