    Could be a sub-par battery... Try a new one. If that one produces the same results, I would start looking at electrical systems to see if anything is drawing excessive current while the bike is powered off.

    Are you keeping it on a battery tender when not ridding ? If not, that might be your problem.

    Welcome.
    First question: How old was the old battery and did it keep a charge or why did you replace it.
    Second question: Did you do a drawdown test on the new battery to determine if it is a good battery?

    Double check for a loose battery connection. Make sure they are clean and tight.

    Parasitic draw is common with multiple electronics.. Any addons and a load test would be a place to start
