Disconnect the starter and see what happens. Also, does this have any add-on circuit directly to the positive terminal?, or improperly installed aftermarket equipment?

Using a volt meter is not the right way to test for a draw, even the KAM circuit will show a 12 volt draw, your after amperage on this test, put a test light in on the cable and battery connectors where you have the meter, if your have a bright light then you have a draw big enough to kill a battery overnight.
