My 07 R6S' battery died so I used a hill to get it started... i rode around for around 10-15 mins then i just let it idle in neutral while i sat and watched it. When i walked over to the bike the check engine light is now on and the battery still dead! Is this normal for a dead battery? Does the engine light always come on for a dead battery? Any tips, tricks and advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

Your battery either needs to be charged with a real charger (charging from a running engine will take many many miles), or it needs to be replaced. if you dont have a charger, take it to an Autozone and have them test it. If its still good, by a charger, if it isn't , buy a new battery.

what did you set the charger on for it to charge? 2amp 12 volt trickle, 6 amp 6volt or 6amp 12 volt?
