I am guessing I need a battery to perform the above tests?

What sort of outputs should I be looking for?

Ok so this is where I am now..

New Ballistic Battery Ordered

Ordered "All Balls" Battery Cables 4-Gauge (Just in case the welding cables I have aren't upto it or crimped good, although they didn't melt or distort from what I can see).

Purchased a Starter Relay and will purchase a mini momentary push button switch to use as my primary start button..

For you reference here is my wiring diagram..



I just need to figure out where and how to incorporate the starter relay and push button switch and what gauge wires..

I would assume at least 10-12gauge from Relay to Starter Solenoid, and 14-16 gauge between Switch and Relay etc...

May need some help.

might want to check your regulator output. I just fried 2 batteries going to Leesburg bike fest the weekend. Put new battery in and in 20 miles it was toast.

That's got to be annoying!

Once I get the new battery I will run a test on the output at 2000RPM..

Put new battery in and put the volt meter to it it was charging at over 17. Put new Regulator on and every thing is back to normal.

On your grounding : I run ground from battery to frame from frame to starter. With basic wiring don't know that you need a starter relay. I run a wire from start button to starter.

I purchased a 5 Pin 30A Relay (Horn Relay) and Momentary Switch, I plan on wiring it up this weekend, but just want to ensure I am doing it right.

#30-- Power Keyed (only hot when ignition is on)
#87A -- wire from this terminal to small spade terminal on starter
#87 -- wire from this hot to headlight (this should cut hot to headlight when push button is pushed)
#85-- wire from this terminal to ground
#86-- wire from this terminal to start button

Am I on track? What about wire gauge..
