Question about 1999 Suzuki TL 1000 R
I have a generic answer for you, this is a problem with your charging system, alernator, regulator.
this is a good site for used parts if needed. heres a site for a manual. >http://www.themotorbookstore.com/suzuki-tl1000-manual.html<
Now I would start looking for a blown fuse, then wiring to & from the alternator, which will be loacated in one of the side covers, (look for a bundle of wires going in) look at any plugs and the metal conectors inside for hot or cooked wiring. repost what you find.

I will add to the above solution.
It is possibly your stator (alternator) but it is difficult to tell on a motorcycle. If you remove the stator cover, keep in mind you will need a new gasket to put it back on. You will not be able to look for burned areas due to the design of stators.
Something to think about, to start a bike, it only requires the battery. At idle, the stator WILL NOT charge the battery, as it does on a car. The stator is only useful with usable RPMs.
The motorcycle runs off the battery only, unlike cars that use the alternator after started, the stator is only used to maintain a charge for the motorcycle.
Replace your battery first. With the bike able to run but not remain running, you don't have a fuse issue either.
