Why did my bike die when riding? resolved **Loose Battery terminal **
Today when I was coming back from ride bike just died. Came back on FI, HESD lights flashed, I think it was more like bike was turning on and off. Luckily I was around the corner 3 houses from my drive way. It came back on and pulled in the drive way it died again.
After pulling in the garage I noticed my clock and trip meter all reset. So which means the bike lost total power. A few miles down the road before this happened when I was waiting at the red I noticed bike was idling a little rougher. Normally it stays rock solid. It was fluctuating 200-300 rpm. Which may not be related to this problem.
Not electrical upgrades to the bike.
In the morning I'm going look under the tank to see if I can find anything.
It might be bad ground?
After this I filled up my gas tank. It had about 2 gals of full.
I looks inside of the fuel tank with flash light before filling it it looks clean. So it is not fuel related. Again my clock and trip meter reset.
Any thoughts on where to and what to look for?
