About a year ago I bought the Shorai battery and purchased the tender charger that goes with it. Everything was great last summer and fall. Then i lost the key to my bike and since I wasn’t riding it I did nothing about it for about 5 months. Recently I had new keys made and as expected the battery was dead. I put it in charge mode and it acted like it charged right up. However their isn’t enough power to start the bike now. I have tried several different times over the past month to no avail. The charger says its charging then goes into store mode once its reached a certain level. But as soon as I try to turn the bike over it won’t work. It flickers for a second and that’s it. Did I ruin the battery by not having it in store mode for 5 months? Is there anything else I can try? Seems pretty crazy this would be ruined by sitting around for 5 months.
