Battery or stator?
Ok new problem on the 03 zx6r. It has 29500 miles. Testing the battery when off gives me a reading of 12.4. When under load it drops to 9.5 when the bike starts. Once running it will idle 10 to 15 minutes then the headlights will go out then gauges will dim. Eventually the battery dies and I need a jump. When running the battery holds a charge at 11.5 to 11.8 and doesn't act like it's dropping any so I'm thinking the stator is good? I see mixed reviews everywhere. They say the stator should be good if you can't see the volts dropping while it's running. So I'm thinking maybe just the battery?
