When attempting to start my bike it sometimes stumbles like it deosn't have enough power to crank over, then everything blacks out no power to the lights or anything at all.
Has anyone ever had this problem? Has me very concerned because I ride alot of miles and do not want to be left stranded.
Thanks

Older models have a circuit breaker that will get weak over time. Newer models have a master fuse.

Check the ground lug underneath the front of the seat. Make sure everything is tight.
(Don't ask me how I know this.)

Vett the connection was tight but after shaking it bike powered back up. Took the nut off and checked the and noted some slight corrosion so cleaned it up and reconnected it. Now the Darkside has power again. Took that stupid little strap that goes over the seat off so if I have the problem on the road just unscrew the seat check it and hopefully be ready to roll again. One of the reasons this bike had not been ridden in 2 year prior to buying it so I may be finding little things for a while.
Thanks to everyone for the replies and the ideas.
