Dead Dead Dead

bike has been laid up for about 8 weeks now, i knew the battery would be dead so put on a battery starting kit, normally starts off this first time..............not today, system goes through its diagnostic checks but the fuel pump doesn't prime, wondering if the battery goes dead does the alarm/immobiliser need reseting or do i just need to leave the battery on charge. it normally starts dead cars, bikes 747's when required so am a bit confused as to why nothing is happening now, any ideas?

They do this, make sure the battery is fully and i mean fully charged, not just nearly full.

Veyr rarely will they click when you hit the starter if the battery is nearly full, it'll either work or not work.

Royal pain in the arse and panics the hell out of you the first time it happens but by what you're saying it's just a low battery.

Cheers Chris but this is the first time it has happen, normally it starts off the jumper without issue and i made sure i charged it before attaching it to the battery, maybe i should just buy a new battery and keep the old as a reserve

the cold weather will aggrivate a weak battery tbh. You can get a new battery if you like but i would just top the battery up and then try to start it leaving the jumper still connected.

It wil go from nothing to firing up with little middle ground of clicking or turnign over slowly.

I would be concerned the fuel pump doesn't prime. The bike may not turn over on a drained battery, but the fuel pump certainly should prime.

If you have charged the battery anywhere near its capacity, yes, it should.

I would still change the battery.

not charged it at all, but put it on a jump start kit, essentially a fully charged battery to start it from

I'd be checking your fuses. My K8 GSXR did exactly the same thing. Diagnostics would run but the no fuel pump and no starter. Turned out to be a 10amp fuse had blown.
