So... after leaving to for 5 days on a trip I come home ready to jump on my bike... 2003 cbr600rr and my ignition is on the "on" position... dont know how it happened, but it did.
So here i am with a completely dead battery. I have a charger for the winter... tried to hook that up... didnt work. no idea why... so moving on.
I did a little research into jump starting bikes with a car, I was told NOT to start the car, so i did not, i plugged her in... waited about 5-10 minutes tried to start her up... just not enough juice (old small Honda civic... tiny battery) so... i unplugged the jumpers and reluctantly i started up my car, hooked up the cables and gave it a go... more power... still not enough! so i rev her up for a few minutes and presto. the bike starts up, i remove the first cable and the bike dies. Try again, same thing.
take all cables off park car, leave bike, played around more with charger and got it to work... going to give it a go tomorrow.
But my question is... shouldnt my bike have stayed started after jumping in? Was this a sign I damaged something? Is this normal?
Thanks! ... Sorry about the essay
