SOURCE: Starter dragging problem
You added an extra ground but did nothing with the positive cable. It's time to replace that one, possibly using better quality cable then stock.

SOURCE: Starter dragging problem
Two things come to mind, other than an internal problem with the starter. Diconnect the battery and take the small cover off the solenoid. pull the plunger and spring out and check the 2 internal contacts and the copper washer on the plunger for a badly burned or worn condition. Rebuild kits are available for some models. If not, you can dress up the contacts and the washer. Push the plunger in by hand and see that it hits both contacts at the same time.
Another possibility is the starter clutch. Usually when these fail the starter spins without turning the engine over, but I have seen them cause the symptom you described. Replacement involves removing the starter and dissasembly of the drive end of the starter, but since you were savvy enough to take the initial steps you mentioned, I know you can handle it.

Make sure that you have the updated wire loom installed for the ignition switch. There was an additional relay installed because of overheating. That would also cause you bike to die. Pull the fairing and check for burnt wires. but also check to make sure that there is an additional harness attached to the ignition switch, between the ignition switch and the harness going to the rear of the bike ( on the right side of the frame towards to top.

I would guess stale gasoline or fuel. Try fresh fuel in the tank. If this doesn't clear the problem, you could need to have your carburetor or fuel injection system cleaned. I'm not even sure if they put fuel injection on Sportsters since I don't work on fuel injected bikes. I mostly work on the older bikes like Panheads, Shovelheads, Evos. Not too many Sportsters but have worked on a lot of Ironhead Sportsters. Try the fuel first. It's a cheap fix. Hope it works for you. Good luck with the knee replacement. My wife had one knee replaced and it works great.

Do you have the alarm installation manual, check in there if you have to get a sequence else disconnect the power for 15 minutes to make immobiliser released and re-install
