Question Charging problems

I put a new rectifier on and still having issues with battery drain. Does anyone know what else I should look at?? I am getting 13.8 volts when bike is running. Is this problem coming from the stator??

I have just the opposite problem. My 84 Shadow (VT700) over-charges...I probably need to consider replacing my regulator/rectifier. But in your case, it sounds like your stator and regulator are working just fine at 13.8 volts while running. You might want to check your battery. It sounds like it needs needs to be replaced. Alex (greenfinpopfish). If battery is, indeed, good... then you have a short somewhere putting a drain on your battery.
