I would suspect a dead new battery as well - but you need to test it.

Get a cheap multimeter. Read the voltage before you hit the button. It should be over 12.7V if it's charged. If that's OK, check it again when you hit the button. It should stay over 10V, or more during, cranking.

Without doing those checks, you have no idea if you have a charged battery or not. Even a "smart" charger can give you a "green light" on a bad battery.

I would personally stick with a standard battery for general street use. I've only had 2 Yuasa batteries in my '06 SVn since new.
