SOURCE: charging system
I think 13.26 is very good for a bike of it's age. Especially charging a bigger cell battery such as a car battery! I wouldn't worry to much about your charging system looks to be doing just fine. almost sounds like your bike needs to be taken out for a Relief of sitting run.

I had the same problem with my 900 that I just bought, the regulator was fried, so the local kaw shop replaced it with a new one off internet, then it promptly fried the new one, upon further investigation the rotor/armature was reading 1 ohm resistance, supposed toread 4/7 i think anyway, had to have alternater rebuilt , cost 370.00 , works fine now.

When you put a voltmeter across the battery terminals, you should get >13.5V (typically) with the engine running.
If less than this then your charging system is faulty and your battery will not charge.
See this personally authored thread for a diagnostic guide on how to determine whether you have a problem with your stator or Rectifier/Regulator - inlcuding some cold resistance checks you can do on the R/R to determine if it is shorted.
It was written initially for Triumphs, but applies to ANY 3-phase motorcycle charging system.

What I learned on my '07 C90T----- is if it doesn't charge, it doesn't run for long.
I bet it's the battery.
I've had charging problems and I do blame a portion of it on Suzuki's connectors at the regulator/rectifier not being weatherproof.
I had to replace my battery at less than 10000 miles.
I had to replace the regulator/rectifier last April.
I had to replace the stator just two weeks ago.
When troubleshooting, I disconnected the stator at the reg/rect and only got 40 volts at high rpm.
It's supposed to put out 80 volts.
Got the stator from regulatorrectifier.com for half what the Suzuki shop wanted. Paid $173 shipped.
