Bike Sat up to long

So I went to do my pre ride check as I havent ridden for a few months, and everything looked fine. I go to start the bike up, and click click click... So I put it on the trickle charger over night and it charged. The next morning I go to the garage to see if it starts, and no luck, it now is making a few odd noises, like things are trying to get going but cant. also the FI light was flashing.

It is a 05 636,
My next step is to drain the half full tank and add some new gas. any other suggestions?

feel free to break my for not ridding for awhile/ not actually using the trickle charger as it sat.

you need to put a voltmeter on that battery to tell for sure. With the voltmeter check for at least 12+ volts, keep it on there and crank the bike if it drops below 10 or so you got a bad battery. Judging from what you are saying Im with RacerX that your battery is still bad....

check the connections (screws) on the terminals, i thought my battery collapsed on me this weekend, so i went to take it out to replace it (battery has been in steady decline) and the screws were loose.

after tightening it turned right on but i went ahead and trickle charged it to make sure and its been just fine.

If your battery is drained, a lot of the trickle chargers can't bring it back from the dead. It will either read a too-low voltage and can't determine what kind of battery you've connected, or... it might cut off charging prematurely on a false voltage peak or negative delta.

A better charger might charge it back up, but you may have done enough damage to the batt to make it unreliable. You need to load test it before deciding whether you should get a new one or not. If you don't have one, most autoparts stores can load test for you if you just bring in the batt.

Tips for future non riding months
-trickle charge your battery at least once a month
-if you decide not to ride your bike for more than month+, think about putting some sort of fuel stabilizer in the gas tank (generally lasts through the winter)

Good luck and ride safe!
