Dumb ?, but I need to know

OK, I just took my CL 350 race bike out of the office/living room where it has set since late Nov when I bought it from nf343. I pushed it around a little to see if it would be nice and start right up, which of course it did not.

My question is--if the battery is low (bike has full battery, generator still on) will it be harder to bump start the bike?

If the low battery causes start problems I will take it out and charge it instead of running up and down the drive way pushing the bike preparing myself for a heart attach (fat and 52). But, hey, I am lazy and don't want to fart around taking the batt. out if I don't need to.


Thanks, the life you may save is my own.

one thing at a time. Charge the battery first.

Then, did you empty ALL the fuel out of it? Even if you did, your main jet or primary jet is probably cloggged. Easy to check, just do it. Then see if you have spark, and if you do, then you know it's probably a gas thing.

Then check to see if mice got into it.
champ you are a hard ass. I know, I've felt it. Lighten up on the guy. We were all there once. (expecting reply that shoots me down a notch)
