newb to the forum just bought a 82 gpz750 and am trying to get it back in good shape. runs pretty well but the battery isn't charging properly - it's not revving over 5k rpms when in gear, and has some knocking and backfiring.

she's got a nice original paint job though

charge issue

can't post yet in the other forum so i guess i'll start asking here.

what's the deal with the charging problem?

rode it for a few days after i got it, and then one day it didn't seem to have enough juice to start. voltage meter on the tach says it gets around 10 idle and 12 while riding which i've gathered is a little low. occasionally and randomly it would get 12 idle and 14 while riding which is good.

i replaced the regulator rectifier but that did not seem to change anything? don't know much about electrical but i noticed a few connectors with nothing connected while was in there.
