Basically a no drain situation.
Give it at least an hour to settle and stabilize.

Reran the test after full charge and one hour of rest.

--- 12.66 V after rest.

--- About 10.4 V while starting. Looks OK according to the write up.

Had some poking around to do with the multimeter, so disconnected the headlights while leaving the power on for about 1/2 hr. That was still enough to drain the battery so the bike wouldn't crank over.

Didn't expect such a drain while the headlights were off?
