1986 Honda Magna vf700

I put in a new battery and regulator and my bike still will not start unless i jump start it what else could it be runs great once I jump start it. Then when I shut it down and try to restart it seems like the battery does not have enough power

A new battery does not always mean a good battery. If you bought it locally, I would take it back to the store to be load tested.
If you bought it by mail, did you properly add the acid and slow charge it per manufacturers instructions.

Some auto parts shops will test it free no matter where you bought it.
