I just replaced my battery with a new wicked start 500 cca. Just like my other battery, after riding if I put the battery on my tender, it is not fully charged...meaning takes 45-60 minutes to show fully charged on the BatteryMinder. Is this normal?

Also, I have always tried to watch the voltmeter on the bike when riding...the scale is goofy, meaning 18 V is the max, and if I am reading it correctly it always is just above the third marker, and if my math is correct, each mark is 3.6V...is the ride command voltage accurate? It always reads just above the third marker (10.8 V) not matter what battery.

Any thoughts are appreciated from a non-electrician.

After a ride, my battery isn’t fully charged either, normal I guess. Put it on a tender, takes about 25 minutes to show fully charged. Haven’t had any problems.
