Sounds like a charging issue. First check all wires and make sure they are clean and making good contact, then check for proper voltage at the battery. I ride a harly so I don't know the exact voltage to look for but it most likly is around 13V at the battery if it isn't you need to look at your voltage regulator and stator.

Even though you probably don't have that many miles on the bike, or if you do have a lot riding time on it, it sounds to me like you need a valve adjustment. That's a high reving bike for that engine that works pretty hard so you might have 1 - 3 loose valves.

instead of taking the tank off just drain the gas tank and clean it like that get all that gunk out of there, also check the starter solenoid, i have an LS650 S40 Boulevard. i had the same problem, i let the bike sit up and the solenoid seized. i don't know if this helps any, hope so. most of the most annoying problems can be so simple to fix

the altanator is under the left side cover that bulges out, to test the out put with a meter find the plug with the 3 yellow wires that comes from that cover and test with meter set on ac volts 0 to 100 range. put the leads between the wires with them unplugged from harness, test all combantions and you should get about 60 ac volts when you rev motor to 3500 rpm. if this checks good you need the rectifier/regulator not the stator.
