What is your idle speed when warmed up?
Should be about 12-1300.
I believe there's an idle adjustment screw on the '05.
On the left side in the frame triangle cutout below the tank.

Battery is possible if it's idling at the right speed.
Not probable, but they can fail over time even on a tenderr.
Usually due to a manufacturing defect on that one battery.

I'm not sure, but yea I was just reading some threads and saw idle adjustment seems to be big cause of this. I will check tonight when I get home, but I don't see how idle adjustment could have moved itself while the bike was stored? It was working fine before.
Over a year or so after I got mine used, it ratcheted itself down to where it shut off at idle a couple times.
It was so slow that I didn't notice it - hey, just normal right? Was down slightly below 900rpm.
I moved the adjustment up to 1250 and it's stayed there so far. I keep an eye on it occasionally though now I'm aware that it can happen.

Might try a couple tanks of Seafoam treatment too.
Even with EFI a slight varnish can build up in the throttle bodies and around the injector.
