Dead battery; blown main fuse. How old is the battery? How often has it been properly charged (idling does not charge the battery)? If the battery is a couple years old you can take it to a battery shop to have it charged/tested. If you know it is a new, charged battery then you need to track down through the wiring diagram as to why current is not flowing.

Yes, with a low voltage battery any power consumption can lead the bike to stop. To see if is that nexy time when you feel that the bike is stopping just turn off the lights. If the battery was the cause the bike should recover and run well. A battery is fully charged in hours of driving. If you have a multimeter check the voltage of the battery with engine off. If you have less than 12,6-12,8 volts your battery is discharged. Also you could check if the alternator is charging good enough. With the engine on check the voltage at battery's terminals. You should have no less than 13 V and no more 14-14,5 V. Make the measurement with lights on and off, and with engine when idle and accelerating.

The popping at idle and deceleration (when the throttle is in the idle position) could be a lean mixture at idle.
A lean mixture sitting at idle for a long light would cause the engine to run hot.
Also, as the engine reaches operating temperatures, the idle will pick up.

Check if the charging system works ok.
At idle with lights off, you should see 13.5-14.5V on battery's terminals and 0.5V less with high beams on, at idle speed as well as at 4000rpm.
Use a fresh good verified battery to take the readings.

after the bike has warmed up, then reset the idle to approx 1000rpm. then see what happens when its cold. some bikes are cold blooded and the use of choke is necessary for a bit, at least until it warms up...

Seems like bike is running rich


The idle problem sounds like an idle adjustment. The surge may be the throttle cable, try spraying a lubricant from the top of the cable and work it back and forth to loosen and release any debris.
