I have a 03 scout that has new battery and starts just fine but after riding a while and shutting off the bike and coming back wont start. Lights work but doesnt click when pushing start button. Nothing. Jump starts just fine and runs just fine after jumping. Any ideas?

Have you put a voltage meter on it?

And a simple to look at is the Voltage regulator plug. Make sure it has not vibrated loose from the primary where it plugs in. Those bikes will run once started, but if they are not charging your battery then once you shut down you get the symptoms you are having.

It has to be the battery, VR, or Stator. That basically all there is to it. I assume you cables are tight and your frame ground is in tact....
