06' CBR Dead Battery (Stranded) Tried to Bump Start....

Battery was on its last leg. Went for a ride and ended up staying overnight. Turned the key on and FI primed, hit the start button and not enough juice to turn it over. Put it in gear and tried to bump start it. While I was pushing with clutch out and motor turning over heard a small pop. Everything went out. Now when I turn the key on nothing happens. Called for a rescue and put in on a battery charger. With charger hooked up runs fine. Remove the battery charger and it dies. Is this a fuse? Stator?

Check your fuses (obviously) first.

Might as well get that new battery since you said the old one was on its last leg (the current one probably won't hold a charge after being drained - or get it bench tested to verify before spending money on the battery if you want to doublecheck).

Then, proceed to check the voltage the bike puts out while running with your multimeter (the exact steps are listed in the shop manual) to see if it's within normal charging limits.

G'luck !

As stated check the voltages. This will tell you whats going on, rather than guessing.
Sounds like the stator though.
There have been a few cases where stators, going bad have caused a small explosion, poping the valve cover seal.

Get a new battery. It runs plugged in and doesn't when not. Bad batteries don't hold a charge. Depending on the battery, batteries usually last 3 years.
