    Recheck the connections on the battery first, check the run/ kill switch and ignition switch

    And on the battery cables check the ends attatched to the bike as well

    Is it acting like it is getting no electricity, or no fuel. If fuel (like it is running out of fuel) check this:

    Looking at the age of the bike, the most used electrical item on the bike is the electro-mechanical devices...like the ignition switch. May have contaminants fouling up the contacts inside...

    Does an '05 use Maxi fuses or resettable CB's. If resettable CB's, upgrade them to the proper size Maxi-Fuse.
