When a car turns on, the power comes from the battery and then the alternator supplies the power. Is it the same with the bike, battery starts the bike and then runs on the equilivant of an alternator? I think my "alternator" is dead. Bike seems to be running off the battery and draining it. I got stuck in Nashua tonight when I went to restart the bike. A buddy of mine who lived 4 blocks over, came over and jumped me. The lights and the dash have a slight pulse and it gets worse in neutral. When I got home, I tried to restart the bike again and the battery was weak and couldnt start it.
What is the part that runs like the alternator?
