99 vstar battery question

I have a 99 vstar 1100. The battery is showing a full charge. The connections are tight. Sometimes it just won’t start after sitting. It will crank, then just clicks. Any ideas? Is the battery just shot? I did let it run down once but have had it on a charger multiple times. It’s work like a champ til it sits then does it. The battery still shows 12-13

How long before starts is it sitting? A load test is the best way to determine the condition of a battery. Any auto parts store can complete load test. Also check the negative cable to frame connection, sometimes it will loosen or has corrosion.

If you have a meter here is a simple home test.
