I have a 09 ViVi Tour Premium.... I had electrical issues and after replacing the Voltage Regulator and 40 amp breaker (replaced on Spec) the issues seemed to be solved.
However, now I have noticed that the red check engine light comes on whenever the voltmeter goes high, in the red (approx 16+ v). this of course happens with power on the throttle. I read the previous posts regarding loose battery conections, so this was the first thing that I checked... all was good...
I am wondering if there are any other suggestions that people with this issue have tried...

I'm not the best when it comes to electrical issues, but I believe that your system should not be charging that high. The last time I replaced my regulator I used a less expensive aftermarket product. It worked fine for a short time, but then started acting up. I don't recall what the problem was, but after doing some research, primarily by checking the service manual, I found that it actually did not meet the OEM specs. After replacing it with an OEM regulator my problem was resolved.
