So I rode my 04 Roadie 655 miles this weekend. On Saturday I did a 215 mile ride. Towards the end of the ride my fuel gauge stopped working and the fuel light would blink 8 times then pause and blink again. I figured I knew how far my bike could go on a tank of gas so I didn't worry about. Yesterday I did a long ride 440 miles. I must have stopped and started at least 10 times during the course on the ride. No problems. It was a hot day as we rode thru Victorville from Big Bear. We pushed the bikes pretty hard riding at 90 mph a lot of the time when possible. Well at about the 400 mile mark we stopped to take pix of the ocean. Was stopped for maybe 5 minutes. When I went to start nothing, nada zilch. I had to pop start my bike and limp it home. Obviously the charging system took a dump. Is this common? Any input or ideas would greatly be appreciated.
