Went out to get the bike to go to lunch and it is dead as hell. Up until 2 weeks ago had it covered up and a battery tender on it. How could it go from fully charged to flat dead in a couple weeks? Glad it is under warranty.

How old the battery? They can Die from one day to another.

Agree with Demolition Man ... a cell can fail in a battery rendering it unable to deliver enough voltage to start.

Check battery terminals and main earth to the frame, if still nothing put a meter on the battery and test voltage, if low then your battery is dead. Strangely enough I have the same bike in the same colour and mine recently did the same, the bike was in warranty but the dealer told me a battery is a consumable item and not covered once more than 6 months old. It was cheaper to buy and install a new battery (same as OEM) from a motor factor than take it to Indian for a new one.
