I agree. The bike needs at least 10 volts when trying to start. Try cleaning the battery connections also. A little corrosion will act like a bad battery.

Looked at the manual for your model. It shows 30w or 5w30 detergent oil.

There were a lot of older engines that used non-detergent.

Yep 10.5 and above. Anything below that and the bike may crank fine and not start. ECM and other electronics need at least 10.5 volts.
