Triumph Daytona electrical fault

I have a Triumph Daytona 600 2003 bike and after around 20 minutes of riding it cuts out. After a jump start it runs for another 20 mins again. I have just bought the bike and the previous owner said he put a new regulator/rectifier on and a new battery but it is still the same.

I have put a multimeter on the battery when its running and it shows around 16 volts.

Any ideas.

is way too high and will be cooking your battery.

"The previous owner SAID he fitted a new reg/rec and battery" - unless you have documents (receipt for parts or a garage bill), I'd say its probably a good idea to check / change these yourself - that way you know.

If your reg / rec is OK, then your alternator will need checked.

Indeed, it's not impossible he's flogged the bike because of the charging fault (to save him the work / cost).

As AdieR says is too high but are you talking 16 v (ac) or (dc)?

To check the alternator output using 3 readings it`s in (ac).
