update on bike problem

So the bije is starting on fully charged batt. But after turning the bike off and trying to restart
It won't. It turns over but won't crank. And drains the battery when trying to restart. The battery is good has been tested. Cleaned up the terminals and the ground to batt is good. So from what I hear might be the stator or rectafire. If anyone could help id apreciate it. And I dont think its a fuel problem because it runs fine when running. But it did barely start a few times on the 2nd start up using a bit of throttle.

Dont have money to take to a shop right now. Any info would be appreciated

I don't have any guesses as to what it is, but I would try to narrow it down. Attempt to replicate the situation at home, and then check for spark when it is failing to start. If that is the problem, you can test the individual ignition components. If it has spark, you need to test for power getting to the fuel injectors. One of those systems will be your problem.
