Electrical Problem - Bike Died on Way to Work

Post by Boubepo »

I hope you don’t mind me asking this question here. I still have my trusty Honda Firestorm but this is a question about my Honda VFR

Started her up this morning and the newish battery seemed a little low but she just about managed to start and I thought the 15 mile ride to work would sort any low battery issues

14 miles in she started chugging as if running out of fuel but tank 3/4 full - eventually she cut out completely and wouldnt restart as there was no power in the battery

My mechanical skills aren’t great but I’m assuming it could be a battery problem (even though it’s 10
Months old) or rectifier or an alternator type problem

Any thoughts or advice would be gratefully received
