01 SV650 electrical issues

I was sitting at a light when I lost my instrument cluster lights, tach, speedo, turn signals, and taillight. Didn't lose my headlight or high beam indicator. Went about 18 miles on the Beltway when the engine started sputtering like it was running out of gas and the motor died a few seconds later. Still had my headlight but the starter wouldn't crank. I tried a few times to start it while waiting on a tow and about 45 minutes after breaking down it started right up, but was still sputtering. The low fuel light was flashing before the cluster went out so I'm gonna pour in a gallon of gas to see if maybe I really did run out of gas, I doubt it though. Any ideas?

i had my gauge cluster go out along with all the lights but it kept on running. and it turned out to be a blown mini fuse.

i had the cdi blow out on my sv. thats a $500+ part. your problem does not sound like this, so things are looking better for you

try adding gas and charging the battery. do not charge the gas. things could go badly.

and yeah, check your fuses.

Poured about a gallon in the tank and it still runs like , and the motor dies after giving it just a little bit of throttle. Won't have time to mess with it for a few days, but I'll try to get a charger on the battery and see how many amps it pulls. I'll check all the fuses too.

Sounds like either a bad battery or a faulty charging system.

Looks like when the previous owner had the integrated turn signals installed, the signal flasher was left sitting loose on top of the battery. I'm guessing it came in contact with the positive terminal and popped the turn signal fuse. Replaced the fuse and mounted the flasher in a safe place, bike runs fine now and everything works again. Don't see how that would cause the bike to run like and not start, unless they did a crazy wiring job.

Well it happened again, flipped on the turn signal and as soon as I did lost all the lights. Made it home with the bike running fine, was less than a mile away though. Last night I let it sit and run for 10 minutes with the turn signal on and I used it a few times this morning before it happened. Guess I'll go through all the wiring and try to find a short.

you know what? i just remembered mine did this when i put on some cheap LED blinkers.
if you can get a hold of another pair try them out. i think my front left one would break every time this happened.

nvm , i didint read your post right, could be the battery- cables, charging system, voltage regulator(had similar prob on r6) but with my sv i had somewhat of the same problem, it was just the battery.

Seems that when the aftermarket front signals were installed, they just spliced into the stock signal wiring and stuffed the stock signals inside the headlight housing. I noticed smoke coming off the headlight last night, today I took it apart and found the signals stuffed inside covered with burnt electrical tape. At least I think I found the problem.

Do the LEDs have a resistor block wired in?

Glad you found the problem. It was only suppose to be temporary till I figured out the resistor issue with led's. Sorry bro.

the spudering could be a ground issue caused by the blinker issue....
I heard from a friend that if the leds get water in them they can short. you can delay it by spraying them with silicon spray.
