Might wanna try and post this in the maintainance section..You may get some better responses..But I'll try my hand at it..

Does it click when you try and start it?
Dead or weak battery maybe?
How many miles are on it?

If battery is good open up your tank and smell your gas (don't breath in too heavily;) If it smells like varnish you might wanna siphon the old stuff out and put some new stuff in..(this is if it has been sitting for awhile)
If it's not these two things..I'll need more info on the bike to get a better idea for whats going on

an easy problem would be to make sure it's in neutral first, cause it wont start if in gear with the stand down....

it's a '04 600rr with 6,000 miles on it. i tried putting it in neutral and it still didn't work with the kickstand up too. i called my friends who owned bikes too and we did a run start and it turned on, but i dont want to always have to run start =[. do you think it's the batteries? i also read in the the troubleshooting section and a lot of peopel seem to have the same problem.

Probably the battery. Just recharge it if you have a battery charger. Or get a new one.

Mine was totally dead before and i used my car charger on it and worked fine.

Sounds like the battery, my bike did the same thing. Most shops will have to order it, so get it done before the weekend.

what's a good motorcycle battery brand ?
Any one is fine..We carry Yuasa, haven't had any complaints..Have the shop you go to test your battery first, maybe it is salvageable...New batterys cost some dough...
