The upper limit is 15.5V so you are well within that. Most bikes I've checked seem to be 14.3-14.5 at 5k rpm but being a bit higher is not an issue. Consider the accuracy of your voltmeter also, they can be off a few tenths.

The battery is brand new yuassa.
When i installed i done qwick check and was getting around 13.5 idle and 14.2 5000 rpm. I have since fully charged the battery and now getting my new Readings. Hence the slight confusion

I don't know how to say "it is not a problem" except to say it is not a problem. Worry about something else.

It’s best to go from the easiest to more difficult tests. You will need a good, digital, Volt Ohmmeter for these tests.
I considered closing the thread so it could be seen but not replied to. Don't want knuckleheads replying here for help. Wanna keep them in thier own threads.
Well it appears Tin's wish has gone out the window so here goes...

rv6john, is a True RMS meter needed for any of the GSXR diagnostics? I just bought (but haven't yet opened) a Klein MM400 at Home Depot but can go trade it in on an MM700 if the True RMS might eventually be needed. If not needed I won't waste the extra $50, as my GSXR is the most complicated work I intend to be using it for.

@HydeWhyte, save your $50 for a roll of toilet paper. The true RMS meters are only needed for measuring AC current when the signal isn’t a pure sine wave.

A reasonable digital multimeter will suffice for all your tests.

Toughest thing I did today was open that friggin' plastic packaging without busting something on the new Klein meter. Turns out that I got the MM600, not the MM400 & it must have just been one of the options I was looking at while at Home Depot. I expect the 600 will be more than adequate for my needs.

@HydeWhyte It has 200 more so it must be better.

Oh I know & I'm SO stoked! And it's a Tough Meter too so I can drop it from 3ft all I want!

But seriously, I only picked it because it came with a case. Only noticed later that it was good to 1000v instead of 600v
