when I was pulling off at my exit going to work tonight, my tach/speedo lights starting dimming then flickered and went off. Bike shut off as soon as I stopped moving. Would not turn over after that. Starter barely made a buzzing sound. So I got a jump from a buddy and finished driving to work(approx 1.5 miles) and bike tach/speedo lights starting dimming again and bike dies while pulling into work parking lot. What could cause this? battery? The only things that I have recently done to the bike was lower the idle, it was at like 1800 rpm's and now I lowered it to like 1100rpms, and I changed the oil/oil filter. I have only ridden twice since doing that and they were short trips. could the idle adjustment have done something? I am kinda new to motorcycles and every problem I have is a first timer for me. any ideas to help troubleshoot?
