The battery in my 2005 Suzuki Boulevard S50 has been fine all summer. I've been riding the bike and it's been starting without hesitation. The battery has been holding a charge with no problems at all. That all changed when I inadvertently left the lights on one night. This completely drained the battery and left it with nothing at all. I've been trying to charge it up to no avail. It's like it won't take a charge at all. A friend owns a Black & Decker battery charger and told me he can recondition the battery, so we gave that a shot. I really had nothing to lose, since the battery was dead anyway. We reconditioned the battery for a few days, but now when we put the trickle charger back on, I can hear a slight fizzing or bubbling noise coming from the bottom. Is this bad? The battery doesn't feel hot at all - or even warm for that matter. It's not like it's boiling or being overcharged either. What's going on? Should I be worried?
