I would add, it could be your voltage regulator killing your batteries- it sounds like your new battery worked the first day, then died the next. I'd leave that battery in there, jump the bike with a car battery or another moto battery, and check charging voltage both at idle and up to 5k rpm. It shouldn't go above about 14.6v, any higher will kill a battery. And voltage regs on these bikes do die fairly frequently.
