Question about 2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado
Battery reads 13 volts across terminals when I turn on ignition switch I loose power across terminals and have no power to system
Have you load tested the battery? I understand you have a 12 volt reading, but that means nothing if no load has been applied during the reading. It sounds to me like a bad battery...

You can test this by putting a volt meter across the battery posts. A fully charged battery should read 12.6 volts. Then start the engine and the voltage should increase to 13.5 to 15 volts. If you do not get this increase in voltage, then the alternator is not charging, which can be either the wiring to the alternator or the alternator itself being bad. Good luck :O)
