I need bike help/ education. $$$ for assistance :)

Well i was having some minor issues back in December with the Ninja, and i never got around to taking her into the shop, and wouldn't u know it, she didn't start up at all last week. My buddy checked the battery and it's completely dead.

Plus we noticed these two tubes (pics) under the seat... are not connected to ANYTHING...i don't know what they do but figure they are somewhat important :(

I know next to nothing about motorcycles besides how to ride, but WOULD Like to learn. None of my close buddies know squat, so i'm looking for somebody to come by for 1/2- 1hr and help give me a basic education on what does what on my bike, and help get my bike up and running again ( i do have a brand new battery bought, charged, ready to install)

If anyone is available tomorrow ( tuesday) any time from about 4:30 - it gets dark, let me know. If it sounds fair, i'd give $ 40-$ 50 if we can get her up and running . But i do want to take her to the shop once she's running if needed to get cable checked, etc.

I live off 290 near hollister to give a general location.

PM if you can possibly help out. If tuesday afternoon is not good, i could do thursday / friday / saturday. Thx for any help, i hate knowing basically nothing.

Those are vent lines and normally run down between the swingarm pivot and motor or frame. Wish I was in town to lend a hand but hopefully someone can help you out...

Put the tubes in your mouth and blow really hard while pushing the starter button. It should start right up
