ok im a dumba$$ and i don't know whats going on

ok here's the situation... my gf and i went riding the other day and we stopped at a routine stoplight. i stopped fine and when i turned around i hear this crack and her bike is on the ground. lol! supposedly the bike stalled or died or something and made the bike jump a little. i asked her if she had the bike in gear and let go of the clutch and she said that the clutch was in. so im like ??? how the hell did the bike stall?

well anyway.. i picked up the bike which is an '01 F4I by the way, and it wouldn't start! wut the $hit is that all about. anyway, when i try to start it, it tries to crank for maybe a half second and then quits and makes this fast clicking sound then stops. then i turn the key off and then back on and it does the same thing over and over. after a while if i leave the key in the "on" position it wouldn't do anything at all, not even try to crank. do i need to charge the battery? the lights are still on and nothing was damaged from the tip over... i am confused as balls right now guys... anybody help me?

off your description of the licking then nothing, sounds like a battery.

As for having the clutch in and the bike just falling.... well, sounds like a story

Signatures are stupid.

have her try the same thing on your bike, let it fall over and everything and see if the same thing happens again...

she stalled it most likely.

did you cycle the kill switch on/off while the key was off? the TOS got tripped when it fell. no biggie!

She dumped the clutch and stalled it, no other explaination.

Instead of buying a battery tester, you should have bought a battery charger.

Buy a charger unless u really thing the battery is bad, That way it won't happen again. u can just keep it charged.

If the battery was low, when the RPMs dropped to a low idle speed it would not be unusual for the bike to die. The "lurching" would not occur unless the clutch was let out though.

Is it possible that the clutch cable snapped? It just happened to someone I know so that's why mention it. It would explain your gf not letting the clutch out and the bike "lurching"....

Though I think you would notice the lack of tension on the clutch lever...

I have always kind of worried about my clutch cable snapping, If that occurs what is the best way to handle it?

if you cant reach down and work the mechanism with your hand or even with your foot while you are trying to pull off somewhere and stop then leave it in as high a gear as possible and stop so the bike dies.
