How old's your battery?

I would take a look at your ground cable, check battery connections, check the voltage at the battery when it's running and stopped, and if it all of that looks good, I would replace the starter relay. I would bet it's a ground issue though.

How tight are the battery connections?

tight,tight,tight
Since you did not mention any rough idling, or other symptoms of dirty throttle bodies / injectors, I would venture to assume your issue is electrical. It's possible that something other than the battery connections is not making good enough contact, which is most obvious when the bike is cold. But before you dig into that, I would make sure the battery passes a few simple tests.

If you have a voltmeter, check the battery Voltage with everything disconnected (that doesn't mean with the key outside of ignition, but rather everything physically removed from the battery terminals). Write down your reading, and connect the battery back up, and start the motor - run it idle, and measure the battery voltage again, while it's idling. Then have someone hold the throttle for you to where the engine runs around 2000 RPM, and take another Voltage reading. Post your findings, and we'll be able to eliminate a few suspects from the list, or pinpoint the blame on the battery or voltage regulator.

`cant get it started to let it idle,brand new battery,2 of them as a matter of fact.

I thought you said it sometimes does not start when it's cold. Now you're making it sound like it never does start. Two new batteries can be ruined in no time by a bad voltage regulator.
