1996 GSX-R1100 Battery / Running Voltage / Charging Issues
I purchased this 7k miles 1996 GSX-R1100W two weeks ago. I took her for our first ride yesterday, and everything seemed to work and function as it should. I made it onto the interstate and rode at a speed of approximately 75-85 mph for 20 minutes until without any warning the engine started to sputter and right after cut off on me. Make a long story short, after I came to a complete stop, I hit the engine start button, nothing, and the headlights, and all other lights were burning very dim. So, I purchased and installed a new battery, and she started right up. However, I noticed that all of the bike's lights were still very dim, compared to the brightness that they should be.
So, it seems to me that my bike has an issue with not producing the voltage to charge the battery, and also does not supply the bike with any running voltage to operate the electric system.
I made sure that the battery was installed correctly,nothing was loose, connections were cleaned, and I even used the electric connection grease, so where or what should I look at next to trace the charging, or lack of charging issues?
Any help is very much appreciated!
It's not always easy being me!
