Do you know how to use an amp meter?

Then take the negative terminal off and throw your meter between that and the battery. How many amps when nothing is on?

Need help with my ongoing drained battery
The reason your battery will be draining after riding it a couple of times ,is there will be an issue with the charging system ,if you have full charged the battery with a plug in wall charger , check with a multi meter set on volts the voltage should be 12.9 to 13.5 for a fully charged battery , next have the battery connected to the bike and start it , you will now need to check the voltage coming from the stator this can be done with the negative side of the multimeter to earth and the positive to the battery positive side lead . you should getting a consistent voltage of around 12.9 to 13 volts, if this this the case , the battery is bad , if not the stator or connection to the stator is bad . If if the battery is good and the charge is good you have a parasitic drain , caused by a bad earth somewhere

That's not a good sight to see in anyone's books.. I'd still be tempted to look further down the line, or should I say 'wire',, to see if anything has either suffered from this tragedy, or maybe added to its cause. Look at the regulator and/or rectifier carefully and inspect for any damage something similar as the photo's above. Whether the regulator and rectifier are both in the one unit,, I can't say.. I'd hate to see you either get all the above rewired or buy a replacement only to have the same thing happen to it in good time because of a fault elsewhere...
Good luck
Al

It actually did. I was on a dinner date with cute co-worker. I spent $225 on tow at 3am. And sadly to say my ROCKET is in the shop.

To be continued...
