cbrlocal If you can bump start it and run fine, your alternator is working. Charge as jkv said and get it tested for cranking amps. My original battery Yuasa lasted 8 years; just recently replaced for $40.

Is there a way to tell if my alternator is bad or if I need a new battery? I think I only bought it last year, but I don't know if I killed it now.
Sounds like you may have 2 problems.

The starting issue would most likely be due to the battery. Fully charging it and load testing would confirm if it's operating properly. Start by fully charging it.

The other issue may be due to old gas if you didn't add stabilizer before storage. If that's the case I'd completely drain the fuel. I would also add Chevron Techron Concentrate (1oz per gal) to the fresh gas.

I recommend doing that once a year anyway, just to keep the injector, intake valves, and combustion chamber clear of deposits.

MotoMike Doubtful that there is a problem with the alternator. I'd recommend fully charging the battery, then have it load tested (most auto parts stores will load test batteries).
