battery dies on high beam

When i take my 929 out for a ride for about half an hour or more... if i stop and try to start the bike again the battery is too low to fire the bike up. this only happens when i ride with my high beams on, otherwise it works good. any ideas of what the problem could be?

Check the stator and the votage regulator.

Re: battery dies on high beam

High beam draws more current than low beam.
If it _only_ happens on high beam then I'd be guessing your stator is not quite keeping the battery charged enough.
The battery may be going bad or it could be the stator or regulator.

Re: battery dies on high beam

May I suggest you taje the tools with you on all your rides? The reason being; it isn't going to start when you are out.

If you don't use high beams it's not a problem though and you shouldn't be using them that much anyway?
