Question about 1996 Suzuki GSX 750 F (Katana)
I have put my bike in the shop numerous times. I just had the carbs cleaned and they told me I needed a new battery (which was fairly new.) I went and bought a brand new battery and the bike fell dead after about 45 minutes. What's going on with the charging system? I understand that bikes don't have alternators so what can I do?
Your katana does have an alternator on the rear of the motor
