Check that the cable from your battery to the starter motor is not corroded and maybe broken.

SOURCE: bad battery
Don't rely on on whether the bike will start at a gas station to determine if the charging system is working. Get the multimeter out and do a proper test. Should be getting about 14.5 volts @ around 3K RPM. It's too easy of a test to to just skip. If it is charging then start looking for something else. Was the new battery properly charged to begin with? Loose battery connection? I suppose the GPS could be too much but you said that it was dying last november, so I would suspect something else. P.S. you need a properly charged battery to get an accurate reading for the charging test.

The problem may be the clutch thrust bearing,if it seizes and you pull in the handlebar lever the mechanism may get damaged . A lot of play in the lever and rough action with no effect on the clutch is the result.It may just be the clutch plate slightly seized the results of this are proper handlebr lever action but as soon as you put the bike in gear in jumps forward ,try running the engine at tickover for 30 minutes to really warm up the bike then put it in gear,after a few trys things should free up.

Sounds like you need to check your charging system.Battery when engine running alittle over idle should charge at 14.5 volts. If it does not check the output of your stator by testing lead at the regulator rectifier... It may be you have a bad regulator rectifier...

Make sure all the basic stuff has been checked such as...
-fuel in tank at sufficient level?
-engine stop switch on RHS handlebar?
-transmission in neutral?
-side stand up if trans. not in neutral?
-check for damage to wiring under seat at fuel pump controller?
If all else fails take to dealer or call for roadside assistance to pick up bike and take it to BMW dealer for warranty repair. Use the warranty instead of trying to DIY it!
could have fuel delivery problem, ignition problem.... who knows without some diagnostic tools.
