I hate electrical and im no Steve Hawking, but went to go out today, bike is dead after riding it home last night and turning it off. Have taken battery out and have put all the leads on it and it says its fully chraged etc.

Check the yellow and white connectors under teh left ram air cover. Pull them apart and look for corrosion and/or burned wires.

Seems this problem is popping up alot recently... I still haven't solved my problem :laugh

I have soldered the wires from that white plug together, and also soldered the wires on the sarter solenoid but still have the problem.. From what SteveTLS has helped me with, i have to replace my battery.. So once i got that in i'll let you's know if the problem is solved :laugh

Could it have anything to do with the charging system on the bike? Like it's not doing enough to keep the battery at it's best?

You really need to disconnect the battery
Remove the connector from the plastic block
clean it , a glass fibber brush works well
tighten up the female connector, greasy and reassemble

If it is just working the connection will get hot and melt the connector

Sounds like we should spend sum time drinking beer and fixing electrics
