"Also connected the 12V charge lead and instead of getting the quoted 5A only got 2.5A at WOT. It didn't even start charging until about 2500rpm, so quite disappointing there. I have fitted a larger solar panel."
Won't the charge rate depend on the state of the battery? Unless the battery is totally flat, you are going to get something less than the max. output.
