    I know in cars you want your charging system to be putting out 13.8 volts. Is this not the same on bikes?

    Tend to remember that 14.2 is optimal, up to 14.8 is just fine

    Yep
    You can only improve on perfection for so long and then it just is what it is.

    CompuFire

    If your bike is fuel injected then you should be using the 40amp 3 phase system due to the additional electrical load from the fuel pump etc.
