When you put a voltmeter across the battery terminals, you should get >13.5V (typically) with the engine running.
If less than this then your charging system is faulty and your battery will not charge.
See this personally authored thread for a diagnostic guide on how to determine whether you have a problem with your stator or Rectifier/Regulator - inlcuding some cold resistance checks you can do on the R/R to determine if it is shorted.
It was written initially for Triumphs, but applies to ANY 3-phase motorcycle charging system.
