Hey there msplainnasty,

[align=left]First thing,pop your battery on the charger and give it a good full charge. Once it is charged,I would run it to a local parts store (auto zone, advance auto parts...) and have them load test it. Most will do it for free. Just because it is new doesn't mean it is good. If it tests good, put it back on the bike andstart the engine. Using a Volt Meter, check across the battery and let us know what the voltage reading is at an idle.Keeping the meter attached, rev the engine to about 3000rpm and tell us what voltage reading you get.[/align]
[align=left]One other thing, when you shut off the bike, which position do you leave the ignition switch in? There is a location called PARK. If it is left in this position, the electronics on the bike are still on and will run the battery down.
