Check the battery voltage when the bike is off. If its less than 12.8 its low battery voltage.
meaning time for new battery.. correct?

No you may need to just put it on a tender if the battery voltage is low. At idle you are not charging the battery. It only charges after 5000 rpms. It may be so low that when the fans kick on it drains it down past 12.8v.
