Having electrical issue
I just moved from Idaho to Columbus, Mississippi so if there is anyone in the area, "Hello."
So I've encountered an issue that almost left me stranded tonight and would like a little insight.
The past 2 or 3 times I went to start my bike, it would make a little buzz then go completely dead. No lights or anything. I turned the key off and on a few times and got it to come on again. After a few times of trying this, I finally got enough juice to crank. It acted completely normal the rest of the day. This afternoon I got the same thing. I ended up moving the handle bars around until I got power, and finally turn over. As I was riding home, the tachometer was jumping sporadically. The other day it jumped 1-2k, but tonight it was everywhere. I also encountered all the lights flickering almost to the point of going out. Occasionally the bike power would cut out. I managed to get it home.
Any suggestions for these symptoms? My guesses are either the battery is going bad, or a short or bad wire somewhere.
Any help would be much appreciated.
