I recently bought a used 2001 DR400ZS with 1700 miles.

I rode it one day for 30 miles or so when it started stalling out, felt like it was running out of gas, cutting out. So I pulled over and when I let off the gas it stalled. It would not restart.

Checked the gas flow, float bowl, jets, etc.
Checked the spark - good.

I got it back to my garage and squirted some starter fluid, nothing.

But the battery was low so I jumped it and it fired right up.

My questions are:

- Will this bike run without a battery?
- If the battery is low or going bad, could this cause it to stop running?
