Kinda like shake, rattle then roll to a stop.
Have a 2004 Lightning that seemed like it had an electrical issue. Ran lots of tests only to find out the battery had gone south. Lights were bright, fuel pump sounded almost normal...etc. Started it, ran for 3-6 seconds and then died. Dropped a new battery in it and now we're lov'in life again.
For those that have not come across this and have spent a lot of time chasing trouble shooting diagrams ....have the battery tested before opening the service manual. Would have saved me a lot of time. Lost a week of riding in an area of the US where some hide in there homes for 4 months or fly south with our winged friends.
