Electrical Hell

I have a 20 year old Vulcan 1500 that everyone in Texas has refused to work on. It started off with a dead battery. I replaced it. Ran for 2 days and died again. It doesnt die while riding, but after its shut off its dead. Someone told me stator was bad, I replaced it, still no good. All grounds have been checked, all wiring has been gone through. Same guy told me to replace voltage regulator. I have not done that yet. My clutch switch also has obvious short, sometimes it has to be jiggled to start, but the brand new battery still wont hold a charge, can the switch cause this whole problem? If so, can it be by-passed? If anyone knows anything, it would be greatly appreciated. I am a paint and body man, not a mechanic, any questions about paint or body for your bike I would be glad to answer. Thanks.
