Hey guys.

i just bought this bike, it's a '94 GW with 188k miles. runs excellent, has a little blue smoke but not bad (sort of to be expected in my eyes), Excellent condition overall. everything works except:

the fm radio doesn't pull in Anything.

and the reason i'm posting this, the alternator... i hooked up my meters and at idle it's putting out about 12.4-12.5, rev up and it puts out about 13.5 till i get over about 3500rpm then it drops to about 11.5-12. in a car this is obviously a bad alternator or something in the charging circuit, i assume the same of the goldwing?

also it may have a discharge somewhere on the battery, anything common i should check? i really don't feel like pulling off all the plastics!

Where is the alternator even at on this beast? i have not torn into a GL1500 yet.
