Voltage probs!

To anyone who can help or advise! Have tested battery and it is charging properly. Yellow green gauge cluster wire shows 12.89 when ignition on but when engine is running it drops to 8.25 volts, battery is getting 14.05 with engine running! Because of this tacho not working!
Thanks to anyone who can help me with this little beauty.

Re: Voltage probs!

Check the ground cable cluster behind the gauges (there's a LOT of grounds all going to a block). Look for any signs of corrosion, loose connections etc. Failing that, look at any other connectors between the clocks and the battery checking for loose connections or corrosion.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

It has to be a bad earth on the cluster is my guess.
