Not a battery expert by any means, but I've read that with a severely depleted battery sometimes it requires a slow-recharge (maybe even a trickle charge) over a period of hours to charge up enough for the battery to retain the charge. I'm NOT positive about this; hopefully someone else can help nail it down for you ...I left my lights on over night and of course in the morning she was dead. I jumped her and as soon as I disconnect the cables she dies. Anybody have a clue as to the problem here?
Jumping off a car is fine as long as the car is not running.You could have damaged your stator,if you jumped it off with a car.A car battery has way too many amps for a motorcycle.
+1....I've jumped my 4 wheeler several times with my truck battery and had no problems, as long as the engine is off, it's fine.Jumping off a car is fine as long as the car is not running.
The motorcycle starter will only draw the juice it needs. But if the car is running, the car's charging system will push a charge across the cables... not good.
