08 Versys with sudden electrical issue
So, this morning I come out to my bike, to run an errand. Keeping in mind I rode the bike yesterday with no issues, and the battery is kept on a trickle charger (most of the time).
I go to start it up and it starts to run through the usual instrument diagnostics with the warning lights etc, when suddenly it starts to flicker and goes black.
I turn key off and try again. Flickers a couple times and makes a sick sounding noise then nothing..
I take the seat off thinking my battery is dead and jump it with my little Whistler batter jumper. Bike starts right up, but as soon as I remove, it goes dead. I do this twice and finally start wondering what the heck is going on.
I push it back in garage and plug in my trickle charger which immediately starts blinking green, which signifies the battery is at al least 80%.
I try and start it again, and same thing, the instrument display is flickering and making a sick noise when the fuel injetors try and do their thing.
Any ideas what may be happeing?? I have a long trip coming up and need this troubleshooted, like right now.
Thanks in advance,
