some one was playing with my 06 wr450 in the garage and left the button that powers the computer and stuff one. didnt realize it until i was out at the desert ready to ride. it was no biggy as i had the kick starter. the problem was that i could hear a wierd noise coming from the right side almost like a whinning. after about 2 hours of riding the battery would still not start the bike so i unplugged the head light and by the end of the day it would start the bike. i still can figure out what the noise is though. was it the stator charging the battery?

Just re-charge the battery. Mine does that if the battery goes flat.

The headlight has nothing to do with the charging circuit. It's on a seperate magneto coil. The charging circuit is only about 2 amps max so if the battery is really dead it will take quite a bit of riding to recharge it.
