did you charge the battery with a battery charger? Don't fry it thay don't like heavy charges (hi amprage) it is not a car battery. Lets find the problem before we start buying stuff.

Late one night I went through the garage to let the Dog out and there was a little red glow coming from the corner of the garage. It took me a little bit to figure out what was going on. I hooked up my battery tender for a few hours the next day and it was good as new. And this is on an 04.

My 06 sometimes gets stuck & won't turn the motort over, I have on an occasion or two left my ignition on. I thought the sprag gear or similar was packing in, maybe I just need to recharge the battery from what I read here.
Most likely there is nothing wrong with your battery. Occasionally the engine will stop on the compression stroke and the starter motor does not have enough force to turn it over and engage the auto-decomp. Just put the bike in gear and rock it a bit to move the engine past TDC. Happens occasionally to both my WR's. A slight design flaw but no big deal.
