    Sounds like it could be a loose connection. Especially check the battery terminal connections

    Battery could still be bad. I've seen tons of people have the exact same issue you're having and say the exact same thing you just said, and most of the time its still the battery. Hell, I had the same problem myself and a new battery corrected it. If it isnt your battery, start checking connections at the battery and work your way out.

    Key wires.png I had a similar issue for my bike and it was where the wires connect to the ignition key, the eye connector broke.

    I charged the battery and hasn't done it since sometimes I just think this bike has a mind of it's own

    Keep it on a battery tender. These Dogs take a lot of starting CCA's and the ech will drain the best of batteries eventually.
