Dirty or loose battery connections will cause this to happen. Check negative battery cable connection on the frame and motor. They to must be tight and clean.

Good clean batt. Connection is great. Take it to a autoparts store so they can check charging system to make sure your alternator is working. Thitey can tell you if its alternater/battery. You can also take the neg.-black cable off the battery after you get it started, and if it stays running the alternator should be good. Then its battery or starter. If it turns over ( tries to start)

It sounds like a battery, but you need to make sure vehicle is charging.autoparts store or disconect battery when its running. If it dies/shuts off its the alternater.

Charging system/ alternater. Take it to a auto parts store and they will put load test on it or when you get it running remove the - negative battery cable. If it dies/stops running charging system/alternator
