Question about 2000 Suzuki LS 650 Savage
My bike has about 2500 miles on it. I wnnt to restart it after a short ride and all of the electricals were dead. I jumped the bike and it restarted but would only idle. When I kept the jumper cables hooked up to the other vehicle it ran fine, pulled the jumpers and it will only idle. Also when it was ideling the lights were flickering and the battery is completely dead.
Sounds like either the battery is past its useful life (will no longer hold a charge while under load) or the recharging circuit is no longer working. i'd focus on the battery especially if its the original from 2002.
even if the trickle charger shows a full charge, remove it from the charger and immediately measure the voltage. wait about 10 minutes and recheck the voltage. if it has fallen to below 11volts without any load applied, then change the battery. be sure to trickle charge the new one before using it.
