Check the voltage with the bike off.
Check the voltage at idle.
Check the voltage at 5000rpm.

So, the only thing i've ever seen at this point is loose connections to the starter, or the internal resistance of the battery is bad.
Can you tell us what the voltage is during cranking?

how would i check how many amps the starter is taking and how many should it be taking?

Usually if you see less than 8v during cranking, then your battery isn't good. Even a new battery can have internal issues. Where did you buy it? Can you exchange it?
What about the brushes inside the starter motor? Anyone had experience with these worn out? What are the symptoms?

Started at idle 13.5 head light off
started with head light on 12.6
started at 3500 (approx) 13.5 head light on
battery peters out after 3 or 4 seconds.
Does it sound like the battery will not hold the charge, or is the bike not putting out enough to charge the battery?
