I haven't ridden my Blade in a few days and I got on it today and as I was riding I noticed it got all boggy. I noticed I had 150 miles on this tank so I filled up. Didn't make a difference. Notice it was smoking a lot and smelt of unburnt fuel, it seemed if I kept the revs up it was fine. Rode home and checked my voltage. 12.8V at idle. and I noticed when I revved it the lights came on.
I put a known good Suzuki regulator in a few weeks ago (big heatsink so it doesn't overheat)
Is 12.8V at idle normal? I have the bike on a trickle charger. If it runs fine tomorrow I'll know it's a charging issue
