Question about Suzuki Boulevard Motorcycles
Dead battery. Can you jump the battery? If not, remove the battery and jump to the cables. Start the bike and carefully reinstall the battery. If you have a meter, check the voltage at the battery while engine is running. Should be 14-15 volts. If less, your charging system has failed.

To begin with, I'd have that battery load tested to see if it's any good. I've seen brand new batteries that were bad. It it checks OK, check all the connections that go to the battery. Be especially attentive to the smaller wires that attach to it. I've seen battery acid eat the wire out of the insulation leaving the insulation intact and the wire appeared fine. If the wire bends too easily, be suspect. If the wires have the "crimp on" connectors, make sure they're tight. Your problem sounds like a bad connection somewhere.

You have reduced this problem to (1) faulty starter or (2) weak battery. You can check your battery with a volt meter or a hydrometer. Youj can check the starter by jumping it with a known good battery (if you can access the wire leading to the starter)
