I would suspect the battery. I never see them last more than a couple of years. And if it is allowed to drain way down it will kill it faster. Unless you ride it every few days a battery maintainer is a pretty good idea. Most place will check a battery free of charge if you bring it in. If it checks good then I could walk you through a draw test if you have a voltohmmeter.
