Someone managed to take my bike for a joy ride. As disgusting as that is, I'm trying to focus on getting it fixed. Battery is dead, I'm assuming from a hot wire. Where do I start looking for it? I'm horrible at spark chasing, but I need to get it running, its how I commute. Any help appreciated.

When jump box attached, bike energizes as if the key were on. It will run rough once started and the jumper removed. (Likely gas?)

Well that does stink! I would look where key switch is and also the harness runs down under the tank. I do not know how to do it, but that is the most accessible place in my opinion. The battery may just need a good overnight charge. You can take it to a auto store and have it tested and charged in a few hours if it’s dead. I’d look at all the fuses ( located under the seat on left side).
I am not sure what a jump box is? When the battery is low these bikes act very strange. Once it’s running I would check to see if you have any codes. That will help point in what direction to start troubleshooting. Some pics may also help us help you.
