How bad is this?? Can I go for a ride for a few hours? I just got this thing back together!!!! :ahhh:
at the battery Im measuring 14.8 at idle over 15 when I rev it. Don't care if it fries the battery as long as it doesn't catch on fire!

Sounds like regulator is putting out a bit much....check your wiring connections. Voltage drops at poor connectors could cause the regulator to see a false battery condition. Ground side especially.

Headlight off ???? US spec bikes do not have headlight switches. Law requires headlights on in every state unless I am mistaken. It's a safety thing for visibility. That law passed in Georgia way back in the mid-70's.
Why would you want to ride around without the added safety factor of your headlights being on?
