Bike dies, brand new battery-Long
Well i recently took my bike apart to install a filter and power commander, iam pretty dad gum sure everything got plugged back in right so here goes. I went on a ride, about 20 mins into it i notice my guage display blacked out, no speed, rpm, tack nada. then the bike starts lagging, real choppy idle and dies. I try to start it and nothing, barely even trys to start the bike. I let it sit, go get a drink, come back and it is getting better. it tries a little more to start, let it sit a little longer and it starts. go about 20 yards and it dies again,same routine black guage, loss power etc. go on for this for a while and finnaly get to where it wont start anymore so i push it home almost 4 miles. so the next day i get a new battery and go ride today, bout 30 mins it dies again same thing although this time i was able to push start it enough times to get it home. it acts like the bike uses what battery life there is and after that is used it dies, ilet it sit longer i get more time running. The stator charges the battery so i am worred that the stator whent out. any other recommends. How would the battery charge itself back up by letting it sit if the stator was out? im incredibly frustrated and dont know what to do. Is there a fuse i need to check,and if so any other fuses besides the ones under the seat? I have also heard that it may be the rectifier?What is it, what does it do etc.
