2012 RG with 25k miles and up to date on all recalls. 3 weeks ago Check engine and battery lights both come so I take bike home, remove seat check battery and wiring for any loose parts or breaks. Found nothing started bike back up and no problems at all.
Wed, rode to NY app. 300 miles with no issues, thursday rode app. 25 miles and both lights came on again. Turned bike off, tried to restart and nothing but clicking, jumped motorcycle using cables and another motorcycle, bike started right up and no warning lights seen.
Friday rode app. 60 miles and both lights came on again, shut bike off and would not restart, same clicking sound, jumped bike again from another motorcycle. Rode app. 20 more miles and slowly lost lights, gauges and throttle control.
Had bike towed to nearest HD dealer and waited 4 hrs while they put it through a bunch of tests only to tell me after $255 bill that they found nothing wrong with the battery or the charging system? ARRRGGHHHHH
Looks like I need to find it myself and an electrician I am not. I have a 2009 RG as well with no issues and am thinking of either swapping batteries although I doubt it is a battery issue or maybe swapping voltage regulators to see if it happens to my 09 or if it still happens to the 12?
Any other idea's or tips? I have a whole work order from the dealer saying everything they checked which seem like a lot but I know none of them tend to think outside the box. If the book says to test it this way then thats all they do.
