Not charging mate.......need to check the charging rate....but I suspect the Regulator/Rectifier could be shot......need to check the voltage at the battery with the bike off....and then with the engine running...... :)

as everyone else has said, i had that issue a few weeks ago, turned out the battery for me but when i tested it off the bike the optimate said good. the voltage was 12.3 if i remember but when i got a new battery it was around 13.5v fully charged. on the bike at around 5,000 revs think it hit around 14.9v or so. think really its going to be the reg/rec as your batterys new but you could check your wiring's ok after that alternator but im pretty sure reg/rec will sort it and their cheap and easy to fit. :)
