I really suspect your meter is reading high, and...

the battery is getting old so it loses a bit more juice when it cranks, so...

the charging system pumps out a bit more juice (~ volt) to top it off, then settles back to what is normal for that meter.

So, again, the battery is going.

5 years is a good run for a motorcycle battery.

Why ain't we ridin'?
