GP800R Bad Battery/Running Issues
Besides starting issues, will a bad battery mess with the ignition system while running resulting in bogging, etc? 2004 GP800R

I don't think so if the charging system is working properly. but just wait for more people to chime in , cause i'm not 100% sure.

that depends how "bad'" the battery is. Also if the charging system regulator has failed, you could be sending too high voltages and/or a/c ripple into the electrical system which WILL cause ignition problems.
You need a good quality digital voltmeter for the next steps.
I'll assume you';ve jumpstarted this ski a few times, so there's a good chance the regulator is bad.
check voltage at idle speed, then at 5-6k rpm..then switch meter to AC and repeat.
uh..buying a new battery should precede all of the above.
