Bike wont Start

My bike is dead ! I didn't winterize my bike last year so last night I thought I would take it out and start it and the gauge lights came on fine but it wont rev I tried giving it some gas no luck. What can I do? jump start it from my car? and if so I can't locate the battery, its 09 GSXR 600. I'm a newb at this, Please help !!

No blind optician jokes guys.

I believe it's under the seat

I would go out and get a battery tender to keep the battery charged over the winter. ($40). The battery will only take 2 or 3 dead to life res-erection charges before it won't hold a charge at all any more. At least, that's what happened to me on my SV hehe.

waddya mean it won't rev?

first thing to do is to check the battery if you didn't put a battery tender on it. 3 months+ of storage without a battery tender will pretty much drain your battery.

i heard jump starting the bike from a car is bad. the battery tender should do it.

If not, your bike is 'dead'. I'll scrap it for you and pay you 1k.
