Alright, bike ran fine all day yesterday, started up in "cold" weather, but today, it just cranks and cranks, to the point where the battery is almost dead. The battery in there is MAYBE a month old. Any other thoughts to this dilema? New plugs needed, etc?

It's a '98 TLR

...did you fully charge the battery when you bought it?...

...do you keep the bike on a battery tender at night?...

It's like the majority of other posts that have been thrown up here with the cold weather that randomly hit. Battery was fully charged, but after charging it, letting it sit for about 2-3 hours at night, it wont crank over. Let alone, wont crank during the day time. It's like the little engine during the day time, but it just can't. Quick jump and it's good to go. Can let it sit for an hour or so and then it fires up...
