Good to see you can get it going wih that tiny 525 battery. I have a 530 and the battery is tiny too.
While you have that jumper setup use a meter in series with one of the jumper cables to see if current is flowing with switch turned off. Might be a bad battery in the first place but it would be good to check if noticeable current is flowing when the switch is off. Another possibility is the charging circuit is not working so well on your bike. The battery will eventually run down to nothing and won't start.
