maybe the battery was dead, or just bad. a bad battery doesn't take to sitting around. if you started it and just let it idle, that could be your problem as well. bike charging systems are not like a car's, they dont charge at idle. starting them and letting them idle only uses up the battery.

There is your problem, You are using battery power to crank it every couple of days and not riding it to recharge the battery.
