Dead cell in the battery? Cold weather plays on batteries. Check your charging system with a multimeter first though.

And turn off auto correct on your phone. I'd very much rather see some minor spelling errors than complete words that don't belong. Good luck with the battery, I'd start with what Byrdman suggested.

Hopefully you didn't have the car running while jumping the motorcycle, but I'd first check the battery to see if it's good or not.

You have 3 batteries, and they were all dead? Unbelievable.

How often do you use your bike? Year make model and mileage, I'm asuming it's the 05 Kawi 636?

I have not had the battery replaced on my bike yet. I've had the bike since September '08. I ride almost daily, though. No battery tender.
