Sorry for the long 1st post, but here goes. 2001 VL 800. Riding home my bike started sputtering like it was out of gas (wasnt). Next day it fired right up and I went to work. 6 hr shift, on my way home I let off the throttle to turn a corner and it died. No power, lights, nothing. Got it home and bought a new battery, charged it, went to work the next day. (30 mile ride one way) On the way home it died again, same deal. I've checked the battery connections and they're tight so I'm thinking solenoid or stator. I don't have a voltage checker tool so any suggestions besides take it to a shop? Thanks!
