Went to take the RE out for the night, haven't been able to ride for about a week. Start the bike to get it warmed up while I put on my helmet and gloves. Runs for about two minutes then dies... Jump on it, thinking that maybe the idle speed is set too low, hit the starter...awful grinding clicking noise...oh shit. Wait a second, think ok well maybe with the bi-starter, try again, awful noise again. Give it some throttle, same thing. Hop off, side stand and neutral, try again and can tell it's coming from in or behind the fuse box. Buggerrrrr...Called my uncle who knows bikes, says he doesn't know wtf that sound is, but maybe the battery's flat, try the kickstarter. So i kick down the kickstarter (wonderful feature!) and it bursts into life. Sit on it for about five minutes, having to throttle every 10-15 seconds to keep it going. I noticed that the little pilot lights above the headlight were wavering a lot, flickering in brightness. Eventually got it onto the road, road for about half an hour to destination fine. Then can't start it to get home without the kickstart. Same thing at the pool place i stop at on the way home. Thinking it's got a piece of junk indian battery in it, might just buy a better one. Anyone have any other ideas?
