    Voltage Regulator

    Aprilia Scarabeo 200. Battery slowly dies after charging. When I jump start it, the instrument panel flashes on and off. Like what it would do when you first turn the key on. Engine keeps running. But instruments keep flashing like they do when you first turn the key on and it does the self test. Battery terminals are tight. Could a bad voltage regulator be causing this?

    How old is the battery? That's the easiest to check and replace if necessary.

    The battery is brand new. That was my first thought as to what it might be.

    The 200 has a built in voltmeter. What does it show at idle and also when riding. Mine shows 14.4v when riding and 12.5-13 at idle.
