My bike is a 89 Yamaha XT600
I replaced the recitifier with a s/h Honda one about 6 weeks ago as bike would not turn over on starter if not used for a few days. Also replaced battery 3 weeks ago.
I am now in Morocco
Every thing has been fine untill yesterday when bike would not turn over fast enough to start,
Some one took a meter reading and battery was showing 13 + volts with engine not running, when pressing starter this figure drops to about 4 volts, got engine running and figure goes up to 14+ but no higher then 15 I was told every thing seems in order.
Then put a very little bit of distilled water in battery and it had enough power to turn over and start, it has been ok today but this evening it was slow to turn over and am worried it will give more problems.
I want to go to the desert, but not with this problem so any suggestions?
Could there be a problem with the starter motor jamming or something
