How old is the battery? It sound like it is still charging OK. If your battery is over 3-4 years old I would think of getting a new one. Take a look at your cables and clean then and make sure that they are tight. If you keep running it with a bad or marginal battery you will burn up the stator and possibly the rectifier/regulator. Get a volt ohm meter and check the battery voltage it should be charging 13.5-14.5 volts while running. If your battery only has 11 volts or less while just setting with out any thing on you may have low water or a cell going bad. IF so replace battery no matter how old or new. New does not mean good just new. Good luck..
