Hello. From everything you describe I say check the connections on the battery , the battery will be able to send enough power to power the bike until the load of the starter demands more power then the batteries poor connection will snap and no power will be transferred until the bike is cycled off and back on. Remove the terminals and make sure there is no corrosion and then reinstall the terminals make sure you remove the negative first and install the negative last , that should take care of your issue for sure. Hope this information helps. Please take a second and click the box and rate my service GOOD OR EXCELLENT SERVICE if you feel I have been helpful and please request me in the future.
