Question about Motorcycles
Does the new battery need to have fluid added & be charged before use? Check your fuses if the battery has a charge.
The ignition switch may be faulty, If you can get to it, check for voltage at both sides of the switch. if there is power at the battery side, and none at the switched side (in the ON or RUN position), then you've found your problem.

Start with the basics. Check the fuses, then use a digital multi meter to check continuity from the fuse panel to the fuel pump and coils. If you have good power/ground/continuity, the next step is locating a complete wiring diagram to find out what other components are in the loop. But if you start with the basics first, you won't be dropping hundreds in parts for a $.12 fuse.

could well be the battery has just gone flat starting the engine up and running it for a fuw minuets knocks more out the battery that you put in and batterys dont like cold weather any how if your going to leave the bike standing around not being driven go out and buy yourself a 12 volt 2.5watt solar charger hook this to the battery and it will keep the battery toped up even in dull weather,,,,i have them on my bikes all year round,cheap power!!!

SOURCE: my battery wont keep a charge
did you check the rectifier circuit? thats the only thing left in the charging system circuit....you can check this buy using a voltmeter, first gain access to battery.... ground the black meter lead to a good frame ground (make sure bare metal surface, not painted), and touch the red lead to the positive terminal on the battery..with the engine at idle, you'll probably see about 12.5v or >...now increase to 4000rpm and watch to see the voltage rise to approx. 13.5v to 14v and then while holding it at this rpm you should see the voltage being rectified down to about 13v, release throttle now, this is normal operation rectifier is working. If the battery still wont hold a charge then the negative battery cable is probably shorting out on the frame somewhere and draining the battery. You can try to see if this is shorting out by driving the bike around (if you can), for at least 15 minutes above 4000rpm then take a voltage reading real quick... it'll probably be around 12.6 or> ..13v is excellent. now disconnect the negative cable.. tie it off so it wont touch anything, and leave over night next day it should still read about 12.6v. Hope you find the trouble. Can you let me know if this helped you a lot.
