posted this on cbrforums and got a few responses but i felt i could get a little more info from you guys , here is whats up:

alright, my friend came over to just bs around for a few hours while waiting to go back to the armory yesterday .. well my bike was in front of my 4wheeler so i brought it out and left it out and got my 4wheeler out , we rode around for a while and shot a few rounds down range from my .45 and then i come back to air up my tire and next thing i know my brother tells me my friend is messing with my bike. I go over and see him holding her up and then i put 2 and 2 together and yelled " did you lay her down!?!?!" and he just kinda looked at me and finally said yea , im sorry. well i wouldnt have been as mad but she wont start now and he dropped her on the stater side so im thinking that could be a problem bc it was in the yard where he did it and you can see where it slid on the ground about 4 or so feet. any suggestions on what to do ????


besides the obvious of killing him

ALSO, i hooked the bike up to my 4-wheeler to try and charge it to see if it was the battery , it cranked and i rode for a little while and brought it from my parents to my house (about 20 miles) i went to ride after a couple days and it wouldnt start again... now idk whats up , havent put a meter on to see if everything is good (dont have a meter laying around)

Did ur buddy have it running when he knocked it over? Prior to jumpstarting it off the 4 wheeler when was the last time u started it? My first guess woulda been a bank angle sensor but u said u got it running so its most likely not that. If its been sitting for a month or more in a cold temp the battery my have lost its charge. once they are drained they don't hold a charge too well. Or your buddy may have left the bike in the on position and drained it. while he was trying to figure out how to tell a guy holding a 45 he dropped his bike.

20 miles with lights on will not be enough to charge her, and after two days she will be flat, just stick her on a trickle charge for the day and try again.

lol , yeah , but i was out of ammo at the moment lol :rotfl:

and the bank angle was suggested at first but as you said, with me starting it again that was ruled out ... and im gonna try and charge it again and see what happens and then update with what happens

the bike would get started periodically but i was told starting it may not be enough to charge the batt back ..
