hi ive got a 1989 gl1500 whilst out rideing the enginge just stopped at the traffic lights,on tickover,i recharged the battery and the lights were bright but after a couple of minutes they dimed the battery was discharging so i replaced the battery,no better the bike ran for a couple of miles and again at the lights just died.
i had the altenator checked it was faulty so i replaced it and put it on trickle charge and a week later i decided to go out on it the lights were blinding and the battery was charging at 14.2 volts i got less than a mile and the engine just died again on tickover,the lights were dim so we put a battery pack on it to try to get it back home-no joy.this problem is driving me crazy and becoming expensive.
COULD ANYONE PLEASE HELP REGARDS DAVE

Check Fuel, Ignition, or compression. losing compression is rare, If there's spark when trying to restart it isn't that or timing off in defective black box, loss of fuel, maybe filter, pump failure? But if there's 12 volts or better on battery when it dies and ignition on there should be no shorts in wiring. try monitoring the voltage and drive till it dies again.

Just because it's an old post doesn't mean use newbies don't have the same problems!
Well said, a riders best friend is a cell phone, and a OHM and VOLT meter.:wink2:
