Ok, so first, I've gotta ask...is the kill switch in the "on" position?
Otherwise, my first suggestion would be to check your battery voltage with a multimeter. You should be seeing something in the realm of 12 or 13 V. I wouldn't expect your new battery to just die from sitting for that little time. My suspicion is that you have charging system issues. The stator and regulator/rectifier are known issues on this bike. While I'm not saying the charging system is your problem, the thread below might shed some light on your troubles:
As an aside, I'm fairly certain this should've been posted in a subforum other than Forum Announcements...
-Battery is testing at 13V.
-Kill switch is in the "on" position
My 2006 never had any issues in 5 years of ownership, and I know of many others that never did either. My (2) 2011 and 2012 that is a different story.
Well what is report on your report on the battery, how volts are you seeing before start up?
have you tried starting it with a charger on the bike?
have you checked the fuses and starter relay?
Thanks for your response. The battery should be fine. After testing the battery it was sitting at 13.7 volts, which I believe is the correct voltage it needs.
I have not tried starting the bike with a charger on it. I'm not sure what that process entails but I'll do some research on that.
I have checked the fuses and replaced the old ones (not blown but corroded on the prongs) in the fuse box under the left cockpit panel and even to include the main fuse next to the battery under the seat.
I have not checked the starter relay at all. (Not sure where that is located or how to check it for functionality)
As for your previous questions.
1. How is the oil level on the bike? are you running the later model oil dipstick?
I'm not sure what the oil level is at the moment, and I'm not sure on the model of the oil dipstick. I will be checking tomorrow after work.
2. Is the battery dead, or does it not have enough power? these bikes do not like anything under 12.2 volts and this typically results in the ecu not functioning properly, or at all.
Battery is tested at 13.7 volts
3. do you leave the bike on a trickle charger?
No I haven't been leaving the bike on a trickle charger, the bike was fine after a month of sitting and I was able to ride it fine after that month. The issue started after not riding the bike for a week.
As I mentioned before I have practically no experience with motorcycles this is my first bike and I'm left with no choice but to pick up the knowledge now to get it up and running. My tool set is limited but if a tool/part is really recommended I will go and get it.
