Hey Guy.........Replace the battery! From what you are stating.........your charging system is working. When you get it started by pushing or whatever........the charging system is trying to put a charge back into the battery. This means the stator & RR is working. The battery won't take much of a charge or hold it because it is shot. That is why after you take it for a scoot, the charging system is putting a small amount of charge into the battery, keeping the bike running......the battery won't hold much of a charge.......when you come out after a stop & try to start it again, there is no juice in the battery again, because the battery has failed.
The stator is doing double duty trying to charge the battery & continuing doing this WILL result in stator & or RR failure!
Now do this....Take a digital volt meter....test battery voltage at the battery posts.....(DC setting)....Red to positive, black to negative.....write down voltage....now get bike started........again test voltage at idle........it should be higher, maybe around 12 plus volts.....rev engine to about 1/4 throttle.....again read voltage.......if your stator & RR is working, you should be reading about 13---14 plus volts. If voltage as stated above does not rise at all after test.......you have charging issues (or bad connections.) If it reads higher at idle & higher at 1/4 throttle....replace the battery!
Again....I suspect the battery, but the above simple test will confirm. It's not hard to do & will only take a couple of minutes to confirm...
Have a nice day
