Took a ride from Jax to daytona and back 200+ miles total. I let her sit for a couple of hours and went out to start her up and I heard a pop and the ignition sequence stopped. I thought it was simply a fuse and waited till the morning so I could easily pull and replace. All fuses are good to go and the battery was completely dead. I put a trickle charger on the battery and it started once but the engine management system light won't go out. The battery refuses to charge enough to start the bike. I even tried to jump it from my car and it ran till I removed the cables. Is this simply a new battery issue or the charging system. I've never gone a week without starting my bike, but I also have never used the charger being that I thought the bike was new enough and ridden enough for the battery to keep a good charge. I dont own a truck so it's a hassle getting the bike across town for the warranty service (hr trip).
