Left key on, battery died, now engine light on and won't run right. I left my key on in the ignition for days. I tried to charge the battery but had no luck. I took the battery to Advanced Auto and they said the battery had a bad cell. I bought a new battery and installed. My bike started but with dificulty.. Now the engine light is on and it runs and back fires so terrible that I can not ride. No doubt i ruined the battery and fried something somewhere but do not know where to start. I checked the fuses and relays all were good. Any suggestions???
