If it was just a dead battery the bike should have stayed running after being started.
that's why i suspect corroded parts, high resistance connections, intermittent connections...ect, or a bad/weak charging system.
besides cleaning is cheap, and should be done anyway. batteries are expensive.
but yes definitely charge and load test the new battery to make sure its good.
