I have a friend that just joined the Forum a couple of days ago and has not learned how to post and ask questions ,so I am asking for him. He has a 1997 Trike that goes dead when he rides it . It went dead yesterday and after a jump made it home. Purchased a new battery and installed . It started up just fine but when he went for a short ride of about 4 miles ,it went dead again and he had to get a jump again to get home. When he first put the new battery in ,it started as normal . He then disconnected the battery to test the alternator and the bike ran just fine but died shortly after he started his ride. He has checked the battery connections and everything is good. Could this problem still be the alternator or another problem ?
