Thought I'd start a new thread about this instead of just random convo in another thread. Its raining so friday beers at the park didn't happen, so I got to work on getting a charger hard wired into the bike. It's just behaving odd. The phone says it's charging, not charging, charging, not charging... on a 10 second interval (ish). When the phone is unplugged, it says 'discharging'. All good and well. but why the start stop? I'm not sure if it's actually putting power in, taking it out, or keeping it steady. I've tapped into the tail lights, which is constant 12V. Mind you, when pressing the brake, the phone says 'discharging' immediately. The bike is currently sitting in the hallway with the wires just twisted together and the accessory on. it was at 50% when i plugged it in. 51%, win. 49% fail. Just waiting for it to make that one % difference. Any ideas why the charge-no charge though? I started the engine and held it at 4000 to see if it was a power generation issue, but same thing. weird. You can see the brown (+) and white with black (-) (i'm pretty sure!) in the pictures below. I thought I owned a multimeter, but i move so much I can't find the bastard Thoughts?
