Question about Motorcycles
I have not tried anything. I put 2 new batteries in it 2 weeks ago.It has been running great until today.I was riding it and it just stopped. The battery light that tells you how charged the battery is was still reading full. I turned the key off and back on. It took off again for about 30 ft and quit again. after doing this a few more times I made it home. About 5 minute ride. Put it on the charger. Tried to go out again a few hrs later. It quit before I got to the sidewalk.
Check your battery terminals are tight. It sounds as though they have come loose, or you didn't do them tight enough when you changed batteries. Perhaps clean the terminals both on the leads and the batteries, and finish with a wipe of Vaseline to keep water at bay. Good luck.

Not sure if this will help... however an altmeter will allow you to test along your electrics for any faults. You can check at the lights for example and throught the system.

You charged the battery off of the battery charger with a trickle charge. The battery wouldn't charge while you're riding, because your alternator took a cr@p.
(Sorry if I seem gruff, but I'm an old biker, and Harleys are all I ride. I'm also a Harley mechanic.
Shhhh! I don't want that to get around! lol!)
3.Battery is at 13.4 volts now? What is the specific gravity of the acid in each cell? Don't have a hydrometer? Do you have a load tester? No? Since you measured the voltage, do you have a multimeter?
Test the voltage with the bike running. It should be around 14.6 volts when charging, less with the battery fully charged.
Don't get the correct reading, then you better look at alternator replacement. (Regulator is built in)

Sounds like your charging system is not charging the battery.
Put a volt meter on the battery, run the engine up to maybe 2,000 RPM. The voltage must be at least 13.8V, but not more than 14.5.
If that is all OK, your battery is worn out, and is not holding sufficient reserve. It would need to be replaced.
