Need Some help

I'm on my way home bike starts to sputter, look down at the tach and it's bouncing from 0 to the peak of the tach just as it would when you 1st turn the key on. then everything goes out and comes back on, goes out and comes back on! I'm like WTF I'm on the freeway and it just keeps doing it. then I'm like Please don't let me break down on this high way. I'm like 5 miles from the house and it starts running normal everything stays on. Once I turn down my street it starts again. As soon as I come off the gas it dies no life what so ever turn the key off back on it's dead. Could the heat have ate my battery up? Going to take it and have it tested today. Never seen this before. It's a 05 with 12,870 miles on it. Really could use some help here.

Go get a Honda. How old is your battery? Whatever it is, it sounds like some kind of electrical problem.

Check your ground connections... it's either battery, ground, or charging system.

funny thing battery is only 8mo. old that's why I'm hoping it's the problem because it won't cost me anything to replace it.

I agree to start with battery connections that's what I was thinking whenever I said grounds but guess I should of said to check your positive battery lead as well...

Put a multi meter on the battery and see what you get for power, try also grounding the multimeter on the motor somewhere that way you know the ground to it is good as well... It won't rule out bad battery but it will rule out bad connections if you see voltage. If you get voltage i would say hook another battery up and try it out
