Bike shut off while riding today....
Got my bike running after replacing block assembly due to balancer shaft shearing off and going through the case. I am working out the bugs now. so far it has run great --
Today after riding for about 2 hours -- Bike started missing and then shut off -- I had no power for anything -- I recently installed a gel battery and was not able to veryify that it was dead -- but after going home and getting trailer put bike on trailer and towed it home -- after getting in garage hooked up battery charger and then tried to start -- bike started right up and ran great -- Checked battery for voltage after running for about 20 seconds and voltage was good -- I tried shorting out starter solenoid when out on side of highway and had no power at all -- Anyone have any ideas? Bike starting properly -- all lights working correctly -- No ideas at this time --
Thanks for any ideas that anyone might have -- I am going to start carrying a voltmeter on my bike so I can do some diagnosis in the field if or when I break down.
