Have your charging system looked at, first do a simple multimeter test, get a multimeter, switch it on to Volts, start bike and see what it reads, put multimeter prongs directly on battery, very simple, if its below 12V you have a charging problem. If your battery is new and your charging system is faulty the bike will start and go, but when you switch it off the battery will be dead because it has not been charging. When you let a dead battery sit for a while it will charge itself a little, enough to start the bike up. Have you ever had a flat torch or mobile phone, it will die when battery is flat but when you try and switch them on again after a little while, they will work a little and die again, same with bikes, cars etc. All the best, Forever Two Wheels :)

New Dodge Journey 2011 Where would the key enclosed in keyfob fit to start the vehicle if remote not working?

I just changed the battery in my fob for 2011 Journey Crew, with the battery removed ( from fob ) I did start my car by pushing the start button whith my fob... so the theory is tested and true.... also the battery you'll need is CR2032 available everywhere... and removing the battery will NOT remove the programming of your fob ( also tested )... so no need to visit the "steelership" Hope this helps....

Yamaha fjr 1300 2005 battery full will not start rattling noise near battery when starter button is depressed.

I experienced the same symptoms on my 2006 fjr 1300. I thought my batterty was fully charged, but when i connected a volt-meter to the battery while trying to start I noticed that the voltage fell a lot. That indicates that the battery is damaged and has low capacity although it has the right voltage. I then tried to connect jumper cables between the mc and the battery of a running car. Then the mc started without any problem. So.... my battery, and probably yours is damaged and needs to be replaced.
