    Tank has gas.
    Voltage on gauge is 11volts.....yes it was dead and its been on a trickle charger for 4 days.
    It will crank over at a pretty good pace.
    Plug isnt displaying a spark when grounded to the head bolt.
    The plugs didnt appear to be wet with fuel when i checked them for spark.:newsmile042:
    Thanks for any help

    It's time for a new battery.

    Any codes?
    If checking voltage with the dash voltage meter, check it with a real VOM to see what the voltage is.

    Since owning bike since 2003, how has bike been operating? Is this a all of a sudden concern? Recent modification. If no fuel or spark the previous advice of starting with the basics is most important to correct concern.....

    Is it a Carb. or FI model. You say Trickle charger, is it a Battery Tender. They normally will not bring a low/dead battery back enough.

    She has been dormant for about three months without the trickle charger. The only mods Ive made are new stubby cb antenne r/r am/fm/wb antenna with an internal antenna mounted in the front fairing. Two new tires.

    Fuel injection

    O.K. it is time for a new battery. Im a bad dad and I'm on my way to Rodney's:hii

    "it will crank over at a pretty good pace".

    Let us know how it goes - I'm curious.

    Mine will lug when cranking when its time.

    Good Luck
