Couple of questions. Has the bike sat for a while? Have you cleaned the battery terminals and the end of the ground cable?

Check the battery for water. Then check the charging system out put.13.5- 15.5 volts at 1500-2000 rpm if possible.Like edwins says clean the ground even if it looks clean looks and are are two different things.
After that you may need to check the rectifier / regulator. Then the stator for continuity and out put. If the battery is over 4-5 years old buy new.

If it has sat with fuel in it and it won't take throttle, it's a good indication of clogged jets.
