Provided the battery isn't dead, could it be a faulty kick stand switch?? Try starting the bike with the kickstand down and transmission in neutral. If that works, try starting it with the kickstand up and the bike in first gear, with the clutch in, of course.

Great piece of information. Go back and check your battery cables. One or both might be loose. Since the bike isn't lighting up at all, I'd be highly suspect of the cables.

Probaly dint ride it long enought to let the batterie charge. Ride it at a higher rpm to let it charge. You should get the batt. charged.
I would get a FI bike and save yourself trouble.
I hated trying to get my bike warmed up when I wanted to ride. I like my fi bike.

if it died while riding, the stator isnt charging it. A charged battery will start the bike but while moving its the stator that keeps it going.

i beleive mine is carborated. and I don't think it is the cables cuz the bike WAS running. Fine at that! and all of a sudden it rapidly deteriorated. I had been riding the bike for about 45 mins before that beeping started. LOL, the beeping isn't the problem anymore.

Hey Matt, since the bike is completely flat and it occurred immediately after riding it, doesn't that sound like a battery cable to you?

This may sound crazy to you, but a loose battery cable can definitely cause a bike to die if the connection is intermittent.

Actually, it sounds like your fuel vent hose is plugged. The beeping/hissing is the cap seal trying to let air in. When your opened the cap you allowed the tank to get some air. When you filled the tank you lost air space and the engine starved for fuel sooner than before. The battery or starter is dead from all the starting.

Just a guess, but had almost the same problem with my carbureted Kawi.

Also check your fuses. If you cranked on it a lot the main fuse may have blown and that could be your electrical issue.
