Your problem is related to the Canbus electrical management system, that controls the flow of electricity on your bike. It can shut off the power outlet that you are using to charge the battery. Some here have gotten this charger to work with a mysterious, secret sequence of plugging in the charger, turning on ignition, etc....but I found the best way to use this charger is to buy a Powerlet socket and add it to the bike. They sell a kit to add an outlet down by the existing one. Once installed (a ten minute job), you can plug in your charger and walk away, and it will work every time.
As a side benefit you will be able to use electric heated clothing without any power drop.
If you need more info on this let me know. Hope that helps.
