990 battery/starter problem

Bike: 08 990 adv

Problem: Starts normally for random number of starts, then in sone cases it will just engage but not spin. I can hear the solenoid pop out but not operate the starter gear. This happened once before and I attempted to bump start with no luck. Funny thing is after moving the gears in my bump start attempt she fired right up. So today the same thong happened and I pressed the starter about 15 times with nothing but a click. Tried to bump it again with no luck again. Hit the button....Nothing but a click. It dawned on me that I have had my zumo in the cradle, but NOT on. It is direct wired. Also I pocked up a cig adapter and had it plugged into the socket but Nothing plugged to it. Could any of this have caused a battery drain? I've had everything hooked up for 4 days the same way and went for a rode Saturday with 0 issues but after a rest on Sunday today there is nothing.

Take the battery out to a Auto parts store and load test it. Or throw a quick charger, or jump and see what you get then. Chances are, if you added a bunch of stuff, then this all of a sudden happens then go from there.
