I have the same problem. i just bought a new battery saturday cause the other battery i had, which is 2 years old, died. I got my bike out on wednesday night and it started fine and I took it for a 5 minute ride. Everything was good, so i parked it out front and covered it for the night.
The next morning i was going to work and when i started it it turned over slow, but started. so i got to work and after work i went to start it, and nothing turned... so i ran it down the parking lot and jumped it into gear. was on my way home and after about 5 minutes the bike started to run really rough. the speedo and tach shut off like there was no power then when i got to a red light it died. so i had to get my bro to jump me. then after it was jumped I rode for another couple minutes trying to get home and it died again. had to jump it again... so in a nutshell the battery can't stay in the freezing weather or it won't hold a charge. if you had your battery out in the freezing weather most likely the cells won't keep the charge. hope that helps .
If you can think it, you can achieve it! everything is possible and nothing is impossible.
