Default Bike won't start

Hey guys I'm new to bikes

Yesterday my battery went flat , so today I've gone to start it and everything comes up like normal but now when I hit the ignition switch to start it it makes like a ****************************** sound . Could my battery still be low . I've checked all the fuses and haven't tampered with any wiring any idea
Thanks

if the battery is low you will get a clicking sound from the stator but no turn over. you can always try getting the bike rolling, with the clutch in, in first gear and dump the clutch to get it started.

the light usually get dim or off if the battery is too low ..

jump start sounds like the best advise at this time , but if that does not work , there is a troubleshooting section on the manual (page 75) ... it can only be so many things

you could also try clutch starting it, in second, with a good run up
or down a slope or with a good push.. if you start it up that way
make sure you keep the engine running at higher than idle revs
and ride it around the block for at least 10 mins..

if that works, leave it on a nice sloping road if possible
for next time, in case it wont start and its the battery..

if it is the battery, you should recharge it on 1.5amp or similar
low slow charge, or if not, take it for a half hour ride each time,
always stopping on a nice slope just in case..

With the electric fuel pump, I wasn't sure if you could bump start the bike.

Thanks, I've learned something this morning. (probably that the battery was just low rather than completely dead, but it can be bump started under that scenario!)

If you charged the battery to get your bike going, and it goes flat again, you've likely got a bad battery, or something else going on with the bikes electrical system that is draining it while it is parked.

FYI: Just riding a bike for a short period of time after jump starting (or bump starting), won't fully recharge a battery. A motorcycle charging system doesn't put out enough current to fully recharge a low battery, rather it is designed to maintain a fully charged battery, while powering the rest of the bikes electrical system.

Just happened to me after the first service, it was a bad battery. With my bike being fuel injected it has to run off a certain voltage or else it wont crank.
