Check your frigging battery terminals!

Over the last little while i noticed that whenever im driving, maybe past 8 thousand rpms i found that the rpm dial would go nuts, and start fluctuating . Just ignored it and didnt do much about it , since the bike didnt act or sound differently .

Went out for lunch today with a few buddies, came back and it wouldnt start. Thought maybe the batttery was dead but it eventually started. 20 mins into the ride she started stuttering , and would give in and out and wouldnt keep a constant response. eventually got to a point where i couldnt ride. But i noticed that everytime i jumped on it, it came back alive.

DUMB me , took out the damn tool kit thinking id never use it. Well i had to call a buddy to come bring me some allen keys, striped the bike and voila! The negative terminal completed dis-attached, and the positive terminal just about to come off!!!!


Word of advice : CHECK YOUR TERMINALS! AND KEEP YOUR TOOLKIT WITH YOU!
