Which brings up another question. @Joshua Olkowski: Are you measuring battery voltage at idle, or at 3,000 RPM right after starting? The way to test charting voltage is to measure right after starting the bike, so the battery needs to be charged. If you're measuring after riding for 15 minutes all you'll ever see at the battery is the fully-charged state. At that point the voltage regulator will dump the excess voltage to ground so it can be turned into heat instead of over-charging the battery.
