Drained Battery Ignition Technique?
So I come home from work early today round noon, park the bike, then jump in my car to go pick up some friends and spend some time out and about.
I get back in around 8, to find that I stupidly left the ignition in the "park" setting, not the "lock" setting...and the brake light has drained my battery to the point I can't turn over the engine.
I have an idea of what to do...luckily my parking lot has a slight downslope. So, I'm gonna put it in second, turn the key to "On", get the engine kill switch on, and push forward until I'm got some momentum and just pop the clutch and hope the thing starts.
Does that sound about right? About how long do you think I should keep the motor running to charge up the battery again? Will it charge if I just idle the engine? I only ask because tomorrow morning I have to get to work, and can't ride around boston area traffic waiting for it to charge up...but I can let it sit in our secure parking structure and idle it for a while.
Any thoughts/tips/suggestions appreciated! It's a K7 Wee, by the way.
