Sounds like the bike is drawing power while standing.
Has it got an alarm?

If you've got a meter that measures amps connect it in series at the battery +ve with the ignition off and see how much current flows. If it's above 0.2 amps Start to unplug things (reg/rec clocks, ignition) when you find the component with the drain the current should drop off significantly,

Doesn't sound anything like the problem in your first post?
