Dead battery

Hey folks. I left my bike on while I ran in the house for a few minutes and now the battery's dead. Can I get a battery charger at Auto Zone, or what should I do? Thanks.

id reccomend a battery tender junior. its a smart charger, so it wont over charge the battery. if you get another charger, make sure it has a low amp setting, like 1 or 2 amps at most.

+1 for the push start. start in first gear and with the clutch enaged run on the side of it. once you get a good pace hop on the bike and pop the clutch when you press the start button.

why press the start button, never heard of that before. i usually just pop the clutch in first or second, then ride it for 30mins so it can charge the battery.

Cool, thanks for the responses. I'll go get a battery tender (good to have one in case this happens again).

I don't want to push start it because the neighbors would laugh at me
