I have 03 600 11xxxmi. Yesterday to and from work (6mi) my bike started popping, bogging, farting, backfire through carb. Last night it was worse. I had to pull over and gently force more fuel into carb so it wouldn't die. Once i did that she ran fine, i cranked it. got home and I went to go into grarge and it died and my battery is dead.
went to go try and start this am it turned over, but not enough to start. I tried it again and the battery is dead. There is however SOME juice to at least turn starter sometimes. new battery was put in 5/14 napa(previous owner). I take care of my bike. I don't beat on it,i lube it, oil changes, etc... I have also noticed past couple months or more That when I am in neutral with signal on my neutral light would alternate flickering. Thats electrical problem. My light aren't dimmed or anything. I also hard wired my battery tender back in nov/dec. if that was the problem that would have happened months ago.
Last time this happened i switch gas stations. So last fill up I switched gas stations. I doubt this would cause my problem. Crappy gas???? I am wondering if i need to run Chemtol(?) in it.
Previous to yesterday. She ran like a champ. no problems whats so ever.
