Question about 2008 Suzuki B-king
If battery dies for too long, all gauges will flash error. The bike will run but can't see fuel, speed, Odometer, ect....
How do I reset without going to shop? The fixed it once and charged me one hour labor.

SOURCE: Bike runs until the battery dies
Rectifier and/or stator, could be the problem. Check the amperage out put with an amp meter at idle and at 3000 RPM to determine. Troubleshoot all electrical terminals, disconnect, clean, and apply a small amount of Di Electric grease to contacts.
Corrosion causes a lot of problems and is common on bikes after a few years. The main ground wire from the battery to where it connects to the frame is important also. I have found this heavily corroded on a lot of bikes over 10 years old.
Good luck, hope this helps.

Do a voltage test at the battery to see how it is charging, it sounds like it is not... You should charge at 14.5 volts. Start the bike with the voltmeter connected and see what it does for voltage drop and see how it recovers after it is started. If it doesn't come up in voltage possible regulator rectifier or worse case bad stator.
