i dont know much in the mechanics area but the little i do know tells me that something besides the battery could be screwed up... ive had my battery die while the bike was running and yes the bike shuts off but it doesnt sound like your bike is shutting off cause the battery is dying, but rather when you turn the choke off... i dont know much about carbs and carb maintenence and i was ecstatic to learn that my bike is FI (which i didnt know until recently) but i definitely would consider the carbs possibly being the cause of your problems...hey i jumped the battery from the car, i actually got the bike to run for the first time in 2 weeks, the choke was on all the way, when i went to go ride the bike i put the choke off and the bike automatically shut down, its really cold here... but i let the bike warm up for a good 10 minutes i jumped it a total of 3 times and the same thing happens every time it shuts off when i put the choke off, and now when i try to jump it nothing happens it downs start theres just a clicking sound when i try to turn the bike on. if someone could tell me what is going on it would be great, thanks!
stumped... but thats not saying much good luckok, well i bought a new battery today (it was 125$) so yeah i put it in and nothing the lights dont even turn on, the batter was charged to 11 volts and the bike need sit at 12, could that be the prob? so when i put the old batter in it turns the lights on but it just wont turn over. any suggestions
