:shock: My bike is a 1995 kawasaki 600r NInja. First it starts as a minor problem. bike stalls on me and I start the bike up. Then five days later bike stalls again while driving and does not start. :shock: The lights dont work either. She is dead. So I go by a new battery. She starts up right away. I am off to my destination. then on I95 im crusin about 80 MPH and she shuts down. Yup no juice what so ever. So I try to get over to the sholder ASAP with out gettin killed. Thank heaven I saw my life flash in front of me :evil: . I put the key in and the lights are and turn to the on position. The lights come on there bright. Every normal function that the bike is ok. :sad: I try to start it and the light do dim very dim and the bike trys to start and she is trying to start but the lights go dimmer and she shuts off complety and the light on my bike are off. Its the same process all the time lights go on when I put the key in. When I try to start the bike lights go dim bike trys to start and then lights go out and bike is bead. Does anybody know what the problem is. I say my life flash infront of me on the a crowded highway cause the bike had no juice and couldnt get over to the shoulder right away. :?:

youve got a major short in the electrical system. i dont have a schematic in front of e for your bike so i can only give you a few ideas.
main fuse in starter solenoid
battery cables loose
rust under the ground strap on the frame
another bad battery (new ones can go bad too)
good luck

it could also be that the charging system has an issue too. it runs fine with a new/charged battery, that could mean that the alternator, or the charging system isn't charging the battery, and the whole bike is just running off the battery instead of the alternator. when the battery dies, the bike shuts down. i don't do much with electrical, so i might be wrong.

i've seen similar happen to cars, i would think it could happen to bikes too.

******* is correct. if the charging system is not doing its job then you will have problems also. check it all.
