battery or worse?

Aparently left the key in the ignition for 5-6 hours...put charger on it charges for a bit, then charger goes to red.

Headlight doesn't come on, display will light up...but lcd is, faded and I cant hear the fuel pump coming on, nor does the headlight come on.

Guess it's the battery, but anyone have a clue where I can get a replacement on a sunday?

..batery on hiatus. The I was sahmed into making another couple attempts... winded on the 5th try, gave on last try towards the garage... and I was able to co-ordinate everythin so it stayed running.

Now if it cranks on it's own tomorrow, so I can get breakfast at Denny's everything is good.

Disconnect the battery from the bike and let it trickle charge at 2 amps overnight.
If the battery doen't have a burnt intercell connector it'll probably come back up.

If you need a battery, I've got one in stock.

Good luck!
