Battery dies while riding.
Last night as I was riding around, my headlights just shut off. I was a little puzzled because my meter, 3rd eye, brake/blinker lights were still working. So I stopped, shut off my bike to see if it would start. Negative, so after calling a friend to drive me home, I ran with it to start it up.
Now, my question is, Doesn't the stator create enough power to run the headlights? Could my stator be bad, or did I just drain my battery(I've been riding nights a little more than usual lately)? Also, I'd like to mention that I haven't put it on my battery tender yet since it's a new battery, and I have also not checked any fuses or anything.
I already know all of the things to check, I was just wondering what you guys thought.
