Did this a few times with the same results. Thinking maybe battery, I turned it off and plugged in the battery tender, the charger showed full charge after about 10 seconds.

Any ideas what would cause this?
I would say loose batt connection, as it would not click with either sidestand disconnect, or kill switch depressed.
