lithiuum battery dead no kickstarter now what?

I have fitted a lithium battery in my fs570 wich performs great starts very easy in any condition even in 1st gear.
Now I whent for an offroad ride and my bike was VERY dirty so before heading back home I stopped at carwash to get the most mud of the bike I used a plug for the exhaust but I had nothing to cover the airfilter/box.
So I did my best not to spray to much water under the seat.
than I took off riding home but after 2-3km the bike started misfiring/stalling I pulled the clutch and let it back out and could ride another 100m than I just tryed to start it 100 times sometimes the engine responded and worked for 2 sec that's the reason I tryed so many times till my battery had no power left so I pushed it home almost 2km....
Now you can not recharge these battery's with a normal "optimate" charger does it hurt to use jumper cable's from my roadbike (zx6r) to get the berg going (If it works) or can I damage battery's doing this...

I would suggest checking the website of the battery manufacturer.

Since the battery gets recharged when the bike is running, it must be able to take a charge. I think they are just incompatible with some of the smart chargers that try to restore a lead acid battery.

You may use a simple trickle charger for max 30 minutes. Then it should be fully charged.

Overcharging it will damage the battery.

Re: lithiuum battery dead no kickstarter now what?

there is a button with status light on top of the battery that turns green when battery is fully charged (when I bought it was green) So remove battery connect to charger (that I have to buy any you recommend? ) and check every 5-10 minutes to see when it's charged.
I already searched google/ebay for chargers but I find it difficult to understand wich one would be correct for use I did see they strongly recommend to NOT use a optimate type charger for lithium battery because of weak charge output

Re: lithiuum battery dead no kickstarter now what?

I don't think that is the problem; it is the advanced diagnosis modus which starts every charging cycle. it was designed to measure lead acid batteries, not Li ion. Should the intelligent charger find out that your Li ion battery is sick (compared to lead) it might give it some special shocks for recovery, which might harm the Li ion.

That's why you are best helped with the most simple version of a motorcycle trickle charger.

try the the bolts onto the battery and the fuse in the solenoid. (starter relay) that was my problem and someone else's as well.
