Bad connection somewhere.. Start with cleaning the battery terms up with wire brush, etc. Tighten them down securely when done. Dielectric grease... maybe/maybe not.
There's a myriad of other possibilities as far as loose connections go- but you just don't hear about anything else nearly as often. (ground wire coming loose, under tank connection loose, etc.) The under tank connection being loose carries a higher probability only because people have to take their tanks off all the damn time.
Think about things that you or someone else has messed with.
Install a new grip, or a cruise/ throttle lock? If you loosened the throttle housing... Clutch safety/electrical switch..
Install an electrical accessory?
