Dropped the bike off today after work at a local shop to get the carbs tuned up. He said he'd start tomorrow afternoon. I can't wait.

So I picked the bike up and everything was good for about 15 min and then the battery died and bike shut off. I got my wife to come give me a jump. The bike will run for a few min but then everything shuts off and battery dies. I don't know if it's a short or what. I can't kick start it when this happens. Its like a short will happen randomly. My guess is that the alternator or regulator stops working and bike dies. Sometimes it runs for a min and other times 5 mins.

Figured out my issue. I had the white wire from the regulator/rectifier come loose so the battery wasn't charging. Good to go again.

Very nice!  Glad you got that battery issue figured out.  That bike deserves to be ridden.
