FZ-6 PROBLEMS --Help needed--

My fz-6 wont start, its BRAND NEW 2006 fz-6 with 25 Km's on it!

Im a complete noob with motorcycles, just bought the bike and took it out for a spin. As i was riding around the block returning home, i stalled on a hill 5-6 times.. And then from this.. I havent been able to start my bike up again..

Is the battery dead?
How do i jump start it?

It had just rained when i took it out.. Maybe the water did somthing? (I doubt it)

Well thanks for the help!

First off

Second, make sure of all the right things.

Kick stand up, in nuetral, kill switch to "ON/RUN"

If its just clicking or whatever, you probably just killed the battery. The charging system on most sportbikes SUCKS!

Jump start it with your car like you would any other vechicle. The battery is under your seat!

and don't forget to pull the clutch in. Check the Gas too. Dealer don't always fill them up.

If you havent already done so, switch the petcock on your fuel tank to the RES setting and try to start it. dont just sit there and keep cranking though, try cranking it for 10 seconds, then let it sit for 30 or so to let the starter cool off.

Failing that, listen to these guys, they know what they're talkin bout.

Maybe you should take a riding course like the MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) class.

alrihgt, i bump started it this morning...

I spent a few hours riding around my neibourhood getting used to biking.. Im getting better, alot less stalling.

My other question is.. I took a break at a school parking lot, talking to my friend while the engine was off but bike was on. I was like that for a bout 2 mins, when itried to start my engine, again the same thing happend.. click click click..

So i got my friend to bump start it again.. I drove around to recharge the battery.. And once again, i stalled once this time and again click click click...

Then after that i got it bump started again.. I havent had a problenm.. but i havent stalled since then..

Stop leaving the ignition on if the bike isn't running. I rarely use the engine kill switch to shut mine off. I just twist the key and shut it off so I don't have to worry about draining the battery or anything. I'd have the shop look at it. Tell them the battery keeps dying. Well, if it keeps happening anyway. Something could be wrong.

Listen... you have killed your battery! Stop thinking the bike will charge it!

You need to put it on a charger. Like a 2amp charge for probably like 6 hours.

AGAIN YOUR BATTERY IS DEAD. If you keep on this you are going to kill it forever. YOUR BIKE WILL NOT RECHARGE THE BATTERY FROM THIS STATE!
