Put a charger on it and clean the connectors with a piece of emery cloth and she'll snap right off.

Check battery voltage when you push starter button. If it falls down too much it is bad battery.

Agree with the others. Starter motors pull a lot of amps, so even if your battery is reading 12v, you might find that when you press the starter that this drops right down. But also it's definitely worth cleaning the connectors since you've had the bike for a year (assuming it was brand new?) and a battery should last longer than that. If you bought it second hand, then it may just be that the battery is cactus.

What did you find out? Did you get it started?

I'm on the original battery with 3 1/2 years of use at about 1000 miles year and  had no  battery issues. The bike sits for a week or two between rides and gets charged during the winter about once a month. I must be living right.
