It's going to be your battery is bad/needs a charge or your battery connections are loose and need to be tightened, in which case you will still probably have to charge your battery. Thats best case, worst case is that your charging syatem is fucked and you will have to replace that or your starter is bad but onestly, 98+% I am going to say either connections are bad or your battery is bad. Go to Walmart for your battery, they have a 1 year free replacement on them and also get a trickle charger for the winter or if you won't be riding for a month or 2

how long did u charge it for?

it needs 3-4 hrs atleast.
sure, it might start with less charge time, but it will still be weak.

pull the battery, charge it for 5 hrs or so, then take it to an auto parts store, and have it tested. it might be bad.

Battery wires to battery is where I would say the bad connection was. Also you could check your starter wire....unlikely but possably could be loose.

I agree here, charged for ATLEAST 4-5 hrs, make sure the water level is good and then have it tested at a auto parts store for a load test. You can show 12-14 volts but if it doesn't have any amps...you will need a new battery.
