My battery was fully charged when left what else could it be? Do I need a new battery or something else?

If you replaced your stator/rectifier with a used parts, chances are one or both may not be working. If you replaced it with a cheap eBay rectifier and stator, chances are you may have fried your battery. I've experienced the horror of cheap stator/rectifier combo from eBay, it rides fine for a bit and you start to get a smell of rotten eggs or sulfur and minerals from a hot springs, that is your battery acid boiling from the cheap stator overcharging the battery, then the battery no longer holds any electrical charge and the bike might shut down on you while riding. So, you may have to replace the battery, stator and rectifier to a quality one

Got both stator and rectifier new ordered it from amazon. My battery has been completely drained a few times while I was waiting on new stator hooked the battery up to my charger while letting the bike run for awhile but soon as I disconnected the charger it ran for a min then died so I've had to recharge it a few times so I'm justill hoping it's a dead battery it was a cheap bike master battery I bought when I first bought the bike
