I don't believe you can push start one of these bikes if the battery is completely dead. The fuel pump needs electricity to pump fuel so it can fire up, and with no charge in the battery at all, the fuel pump won't run on the initial start up. You could push it all day, but with no fuel getting to the cylinders, nothing's going to happen.
I may be wrong, but I think I read this on the forum at some point.
