Brutale 750 battery woes

I've always had a problem with my battery, it never seems to hold a charge for more than a week if I don't warm the bike up and let it recharge.

I assumed that it was probably just worn out, and after many attempts to save it with chargers/trickle chargers, it would only come back to life well enough to start immediately and then die within a week.

So a couple weeks back I bought a new one. Same exact model, and it's a Yuasa, which I assume is factory. It started up great the first day after I installed it, turned over a lot less before firing, sounded really healthy. And here I am a week later with a dead battery.

Nothing is running as far as mods to the electronics, no security (probably shouldn't say that, but I'm gonna get something), nothing at all as far as I'm aware. I know my Ducati ran an immobilizer for 24 hrs. after startup, but that was low draw and I never had any problems with it. I don't think MV has the same thing, but I don't know for sure.

Any suggestions? Is this a common problem with 04-05 brutes?
