if it didn't start the first time, it's prolly flooded. open the throttle all the way and crank it over.

I think checking the plugs is wasting your time if it ran last night. Plugs don't corrode over night. Check things like vacuum lines you may have pulled off by . Also let the bike sit for an hour just in case it is flooded.

just let it set there for a lil bit, 30 minutes to an hour or so. then come back and try again. once it's flooded it's a PITA to fire up. make sure your battery has plenty of juice, and just keep the throttle wide open. eventually it'll go.

sounds like your battery went into thermal runaway, be careful with that and remove out of your bike asap. it could get hot enough to melt plastic.......time for a new batt.....gl bro

if you use a car charger, don't use more than 6 amps. if you had that charger cranked up, you'll overcharge it in no time. i never charge a cycle battery at anything more than 2 amps normaly.

you might be lucky and it just got hot. but let that thing set and cool off for awhile.
