Default 1982 Honda Sabre V45

Hello everyone. I have a 1982 Honda Sabre V45 with only 11,000 miles on it. The carbs have been rebuilt and plugs where changed. When the bike runs - it runs great - BUT. The bike is eating batties. Its not the easyest bike to start and when you riding it will just die and all the lights on the dash will go out. If you turn the key off and back on again, the lights will come back, but the bike wont cranck over.
Sounds like an alternator problem, but could be something else too. Any ideas here? Thanks, Bob

Hello Bob, I would suggest getting a good manual and then testing the alternator. Then you have either confirmed or eliminated the alternator and then you can move on to something else that may cause the problems you described.
