99 Suzuki Intruder 1500 issues

HI all. New to this forum.  Bought a 99 Intruder couple months ago from a good agency.  Ran good but had issues holding charge on the battery and wouldn't start when wet SOMETIMES.  Redid some ignition wiring and worked perfect for 2 days...then suddenly wouldn't start again with the new battery in place...completely dry, no rain.  Jump started fine, but back to home and shut off.  Wouldn't start again.  Thinking electrical problem...maybe ignition issues...but checking electric connections shows no obvious issues.

Anyone have any ideas on how to troubleshoot this problem?

Welcome to the Community.

Another thought. When you try to start the bike, no current flows from the battery to the starter. When you jump the battery, you get current and the bike starts. Get a load test done on the battery. New isn't always good.
