I left my ignition on with a battery tender attached for a few days, ran the battery dead.

My real question, did I do damage to the ignition?

Should not have. The battery tenders are not high powered, hence the dead battery.

No, the bike is probably fine, the battery may be toast though.

New battery in today and with some persuasion it started up! Thanks Gents.
