My Lithium "speedcell" died!

Haven't started the bike for a month+ and after changing the spark plugs, yanking the carbon canister out, new gas filter and tried to start the bike, not enough juice, bike turned slow for about two cranks and not turning now, the lights still works?

Anyone has any suggestion?
My battery is about 1-2 yrs old.

If you can still get the lights on, +1 to bump start.

Either find a hill or have a mate push you.

Lithium batteries should last longer than 2 years. I don't keep mine on trickle charge, put will plug them in once in a while. Either something is draining it, or it could be the battery, not all Lithium batteries are of equal quality. Hope this helps!

I thought about bump starting it but what if it doesn't start, I live on a hill and downhill is easy but if it doesn't start I can't push it uphill.

Done that once with an older bike and got left down there for a long walk home.

I got to find me a charger!

If you have a Lithium battery on there, for a quick fix, it would be okay to use a car battery to charge the Li cell's, battery on battery, not jump starting from car to bike.
It does work.
Make sure you do not mix up the connections.

I was told that I could not use a car battery charger less than a 5amp does this still applies?

My charger is a regular car battery charger, I have not checked if it is 5amp or more, and it does have a float mode.

It is sold by "Sears Roebuck".
