Is it just me or is there no text in this post?

Walt, it looks like your text is all there is.  Maybe Cvincer  will see this and fill us in on what he had in mind.

I'll split the photos over 2 posts.

For those (like me) that are not so good with 'electrics', the photos of an article in an old 'Classic Bike' magazine might be of help.

OK, here's the 3rd & last photo ....... + interestingly for me, even though the battery was new & showed 12.9volts on the meter,

V1 & V2 results were about 11.5 volts  (remember all results are obtained with ignition on & starter button pressed).

Thanks for posting this. Currently dealing with this very issue and the starter button producing no signs of life was a bit of mystery.

I'm kind of thinking if your voltage drops that much you have a starter problem or some corrosion on a connection somewhere.

Check your ignition switch.  It's a common source of voltage drops.
