Generally that condition equates to poor alternator output.

 

CAUSES

 

Belt driven? check tension

 

Regulator? (old school not electronic) check gaps

 

Diode open circuit in rectifier block? Disconnect and test

 

Brushes worn? Inspect/replace/re-tension (new springs)

I think it has Ducati electrics , regulator rectifier gets its power from fixed coils on rear of engine separate from ignition coils when running the voltage meter reads about 14 volts but drops back to 12 after shut down.

Sounds more like the battery dying, not holding it's charge.

Check terminals for tightness and/or corrosion, determine if the battery requires electrolyte, or has been venting off it's acid/gel/mysterious internal fluid.....

 

Check the terminals on the regulator/rectifier, but more likely, get a new battery.
