Firing problem NEED HELP!

Ok working on my brothers chopper, bike has been sitting for a while so we decided to refresh and get her going...TP motor, replaced stator, ignition is fine, we added a Kuryakn Velociraptor or some shit air breather, has a mikuni 42 carb, we cleaned, flushed tank, new plugs, wires, all electrical is operational (minimal wiring), new oil, fired it up she ran briefly and then crapped out. New battery was bad wouldn't give enough juice to fire again. Exchanged it new lithium battery, went to fire and again battery drained...we are stumped at this point. Any suggestions?

How long did it take to drain the battery? I take it your issue is that it won't crank over but if you can get it to crank over it has spark and runs then dies, correct.

After the first fire the battery died tried to turn it over again and the battery fizzled out. Then with the new battery it killed it again.

I would do a load test to the starter and see if that's the problem, you're also gonna need to do a load test on your battery, yes, the new one.

Ok he went to fire up tonight after charging and swapping in new battery and I'm thinking starter as well. He turned key and you could hear it trying but everything was barely spinning and starter got significantly warm.

It could be getting warm because it is barely turning over..I just replaced my starter on my 127 after the short years of slow turning over slowly..when I opened it up for the third time it was
black as coal inside from the heat......At this time I would hook straight from your car battery...
don't use jumper cables, and don't hook to the old battery..take it out..get some heavy cable ..you can use vice grips to hook to the car battery etc.... ..see if it will turn over or make any difference..That starter should scream....the lithium batteries are only good for a few cranks ....I would have argued that in the past but unfortunately it is true..If you have problems cranking using your car battery..then you have a starter problem ..most likely..if the opposite ..then a battery problem..
