My Busa Died.

ok here is one for the cycle gurus.... Went out started the Busa.. no problem.. let it warm up.. rode thru town. to the post office around town about 3 miles.. remembered my front tire was low so i went home to check it and put some air in it.. pulled into the garage, shifted in neutral, released the clutch put down the kickstand and it back fired so loud all my neighbors on two blocks walked out in the street, the guys at the fire department even were driving around to see if a transformer blew up.. i thought it was a tire that blew up.. ok.. so tried to restart it.. battery is dead. and cant start. so i put the battery charger on it... any ideas what just happened to my bike.??? i dont have a clue...

have you checked your battery connections(i know it seems obvious, but it's often overlooked)? not sure what would cause an extreme backfire like that though. . .guages and lights work or not?

you should probably pull the battery out and take it to your local shop and have it tested(doesn't have to be bike shop). If a cell went bad your battery will not provide cranking amperage. Still not sure what would cause the backfire unless power was somehow lost during the firing of a cylinder(pure guess there).

yeah the battery has been getting weak.. so i know it probably is bad. so its not starting. but the big backfire is scaring me.. unless not enough to keep it firing.. or run the puter onboard..
