bike die

I was riding on Saturday morning, nice day but when I got to 149 the forest it start raining a little, not much but the road on some spot are pretty wet. The bike run fine I have my high beam on the whole run but when we get to 3090 the tachometer light flashing on and off I didn't think anything of it until I was in the middle of the turn and the bike just shut off no power. We take the bike apart to see any disconneted wire, any wire bown, we try push start nothing. The bike is dead the head/tail light are on but the tachometer light never when on sometime it when on against for a few second and off, but that about it. A buddy takes the battery out of his r6 and put it in my bike, I have an r1 by the way and it start, bike. So 2 great guys went, and bought a new battery, but only charged 1/2 hour due 2 times just 2 get me home. Ok cool the bike run fine rode home about 50 mile or so, about 2 mile from home hit traffic look down at the tachometer light it just when out, but it still run for another 5 minutes and the bike when dead against. I try 2 start it, seem like it doesn't have enough juice in the battery, left it alone for about 20 minutes, it start rode home. The bike been sitting in the garage for couple of day and started it start every time and run fine now. What the wrong with it, the alternator, or the charging system, or it just got wet and short a wire........any ideal i let idle for an hour with out any power loss and it rode fine now………..anyone have any comment

Re: bike die

Sounds like the regulator / rectifier is bad so the battery is not charging. The bike runs on the battery power for awhile until it's drained and then it kills. Check your charging system.

Re: bike die

Clean the corrosion on the terminal ends and tighten them down, spray with some WD40 to stop the corrosion.

Re: bike die

Everything you talked about is congruent with your charging system not working. Even the part where you let the bike sit for a while and it started up and ran fine for a little while (batteries rebound charge if you let them sit). You should def. take it in and get it fixed before you burn through more batteries.
