No Netural, Oil, Signal lights....

Hey guys,

I just passed my MSA test today. I was very happy and excited and I started my bike tonight and planned to go for a night ride with my gf. My bike started beautifully, one hit on the start and the engine came on. I put on the choke to start the bike and warmed it up a bit. I eased off the choke as the bike warmed up, had it a neutral. Then, I left it ideled for around 2 mins when I was helping my gf with starting up her bike (it hasn't been ran for a bit) then when as I was going to start up my bike, I accidently shift to 1st gear with the kick stand on so the bike stalled.

Here is the problem, when i try to start the bike, no lights, signals came on. That's so weird! The bike ran fine for the last few weeks and suddenly this happened.
I checked the battery and it was fine. I also try checking the voltage as I switched the key to "on" position. It showed a sign of drainage. So I charged up the battery and bit and try again.

Still no lights, signals watsoever. Then the weirdst thing was, it lighted up once after a few tries. So i tried to start the bike. As soon as I hit the start button, a "click" sound was made and everything just went dead again.

I tried pulling on the cords and everything seemd to be in tight. <sigh>
I am so sad guys, I was looking so forward to go riding after my MSA test.

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can read my whole damn story and perhaps help me out...

Ya, batteries can be like that. Good one day, complete toast the next. Maybe you can try swapping your gf's battery to see if it starts.
