figured it out. i have a battery charger and i'm trying to charge it, but my charger is 12v 6a and it says to use 12v 9a for .5 hours. amp is just the amount of charge per second anyways, so i think it'll just take a little longer.

sad but it sucks!!! after i charged mine got it started and at the first light i come to.(first ride after winter) i killed it, and it wouldnt start, had to push it to the side and stand there till my uncle came to jump it :eek:/ after 2 times i let him ride it home cause he could keep it running (he has better experiance at rideing and not killing it, i trusted him to ride, hes rode for 15+ years)
