Are you sure the new battery was properly charged?

It's been my experience that a malfunctioning or improperly connected voltage regulators will cause instruments to flake out, but if yours worked last year before you put the bike away, that probably isn't your problem.

I see (possibly) two strikes here; Jumping from a truck--too much amperage and buying a battery and installing it without fully charging it beforehand.

If you ever jump off car or truck make sure that motor is not running

My brain went to "hope the truck wasn't running when you jumped it"...I don't know much, but i know what i know...and i know this from learning the hard way.
