Yes. Start by charging up your new battery good, let it sit for 24 hours and then check the voltage.
Many new batteries come half charged or less and the bike won't fully charge it without a LOT of run time.

If that passes, then check your charging voltage while the bike is running.
It needs to be at least 13.5 and probably will be closer to 14.5 if everything is working right.

P.S. Your post really went into a sub-forum that has NOTHING to do with the subject you are talking about.
