Correct above w the AGM batteries.

1) if the battery's voltage is too low to check with their test equipment, guess what... a static charge from a charge duration will only make a dead battery pass a short test when it infact needs to be replaced.

2) any battery should be able to be charged by the vehicle running; some bikes dont charge much over running voltage at idle; so the bike would need to be ridden. The battery at running state only completes the voltage loop while the generator runs the bike w voltage/charges the battery. If a battery is shorted, then it becomes a load and doesnt allow the charging system to keep the bike running.

3) there are multiple reasons as to why a battery does dead. Lack of charge, parasitic draw, exhaustion and ambient temperature/conditions are examples common.

Not all batteries are rated the same. Lead content or AGM density is a price driver. You get what you pay for.
