2008 KLR 650 Learching forward & shutting off
Need Help !!!!!
My 26 year old son has been traveling around Africa on a 08' 650 KLR, and has traveled about 30K km so far. He just contacted me via WhatsAPP to say that his KLR shut off on him while riding. The Tachometer was also acting funny just before this by going up and down. The bike now will start but jerks forward and dies, jerks forward and dies. He said his battery is only 2 months old, but was bought in Africa, but it does say Kawasaki on it so he thinks its a factory battery. Any ideas would be appreciated as he's out in the boondocks near Lesoto right now. Does this sound like a short somewhere? or could it be the battery. I live in Georgia so I'm absolutly no help but can send him text messages through WhatsAPP via my iphone..
Thnaks in Advance for any help..
