Default Battery died...What to do?

My battery died and the bike wont start...
My cousin left the motorcycle key in the
ignition, in the on position this thursday
that just passed by and when i tried to
start the bike yesterday, it wouldnt even
turn on. Man i was pissed. So i tried to
boost the battery via booster cables
connected to my car and the bike started
but everytime i took one of the cables
off any of the terminals, the bike would
die. It seems like the battery drained to
no power at all. Is this so? Theres no more
juice in the batter? does this mean that I
need to get a new battery? Can i buy
a battery charger and charge it? will it work
if i do that? I hope some one can help me out.
Oh, and right before the bike died after i tried
to boost it, an error code came up. It said
Er_1 i believe.

first you need to teest the battery
if you dont have a tester, remove the battery and take it to any autoparts store. they can check it and charge it or replace i for you if needs be...if its bad

It's not your average 6

I agree, take it and have it tested if you don't have the capabilities to do so. If you have a battery tender or charger hook it up overnight then give it a shot. I've heard bad things about jumping a bike with a car so unless you know more about that than I do, I'd recommend not doing it again, no need to create a bigger issue. Once you get the battery tested it'll give you a starting point as to why it won't start or what the code it's throwing up means. Most places do it for free or next to nothing. If you need a new battery be sure to buy the right one. I thought mine was dead and called stores and they advised they had "the equivalent" which may not always be just as good. Be sure they have what you need. Mine's a sealed battery (2004 r6) and new they run @ 110-130 bucks for what I've found around here. Good luck to you, let us know what you find out.
