So I've been riding the Norty around for the past few weeks. After a few days of riding I've had to recharge the battery. So I was confused as to why. I knew the headlight with hologen bulb was sucking the juice but not this bad. After talking with Billdozer he told me to call the guys at Classic Cycle. I did and explained to him what the issue was and what I was running on the bike. He told me the magnet in the stator was almost 40 years old and to weak to be keeping the juices flowing for the 70 watts the lighting needs. He told me to put a LED tail light bulb in and buy a brand new magnet and it should be okay. So that's what I'm a gonna do and will report back as soon as I get the new mag. I'm also taking this time to fab a new oil bag.
