While riding today to 211, I stopped with the group in the corner of 29 and 211 for GAS. When I go to turn the Bike on, NOTHING, and my lights were dimmed. I walk to the Car dealer in front and borrowed a jumper kit. The Bike turned on without a problem, I left the bike on for while. I get on the Bike pull the Kick Stand up and the bike turns off, took the Bike up the hill and started it on second and started, and turned off by itself after a while. I had to tow the Bike to Falls Church from Warrenton. I try to jump start the bike with my car and it turned on, left it charging from my car and it did not turn off.

What could cause this to happen, The Alternator? The battery is just three months old. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Check the regulator/rectifier...some bikes, like CBRs tend to eat them up.

Forgot to say! The bike is a 95 CBR F3. I started the bike today and rode it for a while without a problem. Should I take it to a shop, or should I foind out whats wrong on my own?

You need a multimeter. The Fluke II works great

sorry for the ignorance! How would that help me? How would I use it? BTW, I rode the bike today without a problem, but when the kickstand is down on Neutral it does not turn on, I have to bring the kickstand up in neutral and then it turns on, (that does not happen all the time).
