My Sprint is mad at me!

Dead battery, so I bumped started it down hill. All the gauges went bonkers and and it surged and sputtered all the way home. Crawled it back home. It won’t even look at me now😂

Low voltage will make the bike do very strange things.

Modern fuel injected bikes definitely are not happy with low voltage situations.

Thank you for circling back with what corrected it. Yes, the rectifiers on these bikes are an issue. Glad you got it sorted.

I probably need an intervention because of the bikes that keep 'following' me home. Current garage:
2001 Daytona 955i, 2 yes two, 2003 Sprint 955i STs (spouse rides one), 2016 Speed Triple, 2001 Kawasaki ZRX 1200R

If you're running the original ECU firmware there is a "feature" to kill the gauges under low voltage conditions. That was taken away with the later maps which you can get from TuneECU.
