FRUSTRATED...AGAIN!!! ...

I.AM extremely frustrated again because I am back to my original problem: Hit the STARTER button and all I get is a "Click-click"

Trouble-shooting:

So...I am about to go out and try to start her again...but I wanted to post this so I could get your input and thoughts about this problem...

Are MC Batteries really this poor in quality? I've had this bike since 2014 and have had to buy 4-5 batteries...I also have this battery problem with my 1984 Honda Nighthawk which has a known factory defect that doesn't charge a bike...but I really thought I would get a longer shelf life out a 2007 Kawasaki Ninja Battery.

Perhaps I should consider investing in a Lithium Battery? Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions? Anything will help...I am sure.


Thanks in advance.

So!!!...it took me FIVE MONTHS but I finally drained the oil (it DOES smell like gas) and turned the crankshaft counter-clockwise as instructed (it TURNED)...it was hard and a little tight but it did turn about three times after applying a little elbow grease!!!

So I am assuming that this means my engine is NOT SIEZED (thank the Ninja250 gods)...Now, I am going to refill the oil, install the battery (FULLY CHARGED-it's been on a tender the last two weeks) and see if I can get it started...

Is it okay to do that since I've done and checked everything else posted?

OH! Wait...someone said something about spark plugs and the carbs...do I still need to check those also?

I guess I should mention that I had had a minor accident in which I laid down the bike on its left side (I say this because I am again assuming that that is how gas got mixed into the oil)...SO...do I still need to check the spark plugs and carbs before attempting to start it???

After a 1 year and a half of no motorcycle, I am a little anxious to get it started and ride again...
