Question about 1998 Suzuki GSX-R 750 W
Riding my 1998 gsxr 750 when it felt like my bike was running a little crapy. i looked down at my gages and they were all over the place. I was riding at a constistant speed and the rpm and speedometer are going up and down, up and down. then the bike lost all power so i was just coasting then it came back on for a sec then off again. i had a friend jump start me let it charge for a few min then took off to get home. i was only about 1 to 1 1/2 miles away from my house and the bike died again in my driveway.
thanks for any help you can give.
