I have the what ever starter interupt it comes with on mine. My bike sat for 6 weeks after surgery and it fired right up the battery is now almost 6 years old. Deka from a auto parts store.

Rusty your right on the battery recharge the chargeing systems do recharge but much of that voltage goes to running the bike so its not all going for charge purposes. Average car takes about 10 minutes of highway driving to rechage after a cold start.

This may not be the fix but could make it easier to have fun. Matco tools along with others have a portable jump box the size of a cell phone. THEY DO WORK, jumped off a 6.3 GMC Silverado with a dead battery. They are not for running a car or bike but can get ya jumped off easy.

Here is what I would try, take battery from bike get it fully charged, and tested. If good reinstall it in the bike but leave the negitive terminal off. Take a test light and use it as the connection for the terminal. If it lights up you have a draw. The brighter the higher the draw. Then its track it down. It could be anything form a bad keyswitch, to the ECM not wanting to shut down.

To me two weeks seems very short unless your running an alarm. If so then I would buy a deep cycle boat battery and hook it up to the bike with a quick disconnect plug. The deep cycle likes to be almost dead before recharge. It would be like a huge reserve.
