You say your battery is at 12.58 volts, is that static or when trying to start?

Check your battery connections and make sure your battery is fully charged. Also, check your kill switch. Make sure it is set to run.

Might want to check the water level in the battery too. If you need to add water use only pure water. No additives/ no sports drink.

FYI, don't know about your bike, but all of mine have sealed batteries in them. Suspect, most GW's do as well.
