Every time that I want to ride my 2008 renegade 500, I have to jump it. It runs great, but the low battery light will come on, then it goes into limp mode and check engine light comes on. I could charge the battery (which is less than a year old) and as soon as I shut my bike off, It won't restart. This is very frustrating and I'm looking for some advice on this. Thanks in advance.

take a reading from the battery. with bike off and at idle. should be 12v off and about 14v at idle.

your rectifier maybe bad. It sounds like its not charging your battery and by you always jumping it off, it is killing the the cells in the battery and making it die prematurely.
