I have an Idiot for a brother. I let him take my bike to work bc I need his truck for the day. well he left the key in the ignition and left the bike on which of course drained the battery. Well like a fricken idiot insted off calling me he desided he wanted to jump start it with a car. I bought the bike off of a friend and it has a stabilizer on it. I need to know how to take it off so I can get the gas tank off to see what the hell is wrong with it. I realy dont want to take it into this guy's shop bc i cant afford it, but i just need someone to help me.

Did he jump the bike with the car running?

If so, the Reg./Rect. is blown, if you're lucky.

If he "jumped it" by reversing the polarity - could be just the battery (IF you're lucky!) or ECU/Ign. box (I'm assuming the bike is EFI?).

Airhawk may be correct about the regulator/rectifier. You don't mention what bike you have. Don't know if you can post a photo here, but that would help, you should be able to unbolt it, but a phoot would help. Try your bike's owner's group, which probably has much more expertise in the subject.

I'm sure somebody can enlighten me on what the "stabilizer" the poster is referring to. Aside from a fuel treatment, I don't think I've ever heard that phrase in regard to a motorbike.
I'm thinkin' he means "Steering Damper".
