    You're in good hands with Chicklet teeth (), you definitely have a charging system issue. Maybe it's causing the stutter too? Once you do all his wiring/connector checks, you can start checking the system components. If you have a DVOM, they are listed step-by-step in the manual and easy to do.

    I would 98% bet you have a voltage regulator going bad. Besides the wiring Barrett told you to check it's about the only cause of an intermittant charging issue. Not super common in an XB so a stock replacement is an easy swap, but there are upgrades you can do if you're feeling sassy.

    True ^^^ you pot stirrer!

    And as my punishment, Stella needs a VR....

    Because intermittent charging I wouldn't have known if I hadn't just put a voltmeter in the dash! One of the oddly rare Buell engineering oversights.
    It's all good though, I'm planning a long trip and would rather fix it in the cool garage with a beer than overnight Amazon parts on the side of the road in Idaho. Again.

    Looks like a pretty good idea, simple but effective.

    Oh jeez. thats really funny man.

    I have been looking for that dang thing for AGES!! It's the reason I hesitated to install the digital voltmeter all these years. Who needs to know if it's 13.6 or 13.7 volts? I'd rather have that in my peripheral all the time.

    Well....that was easy. I like easy. Does anyone else like easy?

    My paint shaker had shaken loose the positive terminal connection on my batry. You know what that means, right? I must have done a piss poor job of tightening that connection when I put the battery in last fall. Tightened that sucka down...14.2v ALL DAY. Thanks for all the input and guidance on what turned out to be a bit of slackery on my part.

    I know Iím a newbie bit scratch every electric surface and use di-electric grease. No faults since rotation.
