Engine shutting down

Post by goldwinger57 » Mon Oct 06, 2014 6:31 pm

My 89 gl500 has been experiencing engine shut down issues. My battery is new and it does not happen all the time but now is happening more frequently as lately as this evening. The bike seems to start up and then today it shut down and needed a jump. The clock started flashing and then the engine cut out. It went for a bit and engine cut out again. Thankfully I got it home.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Matt

With a known accurate volt meter connected to battery take a reading at specified idle of 800 RPM and again at 2k RPM's and post results.
