Some newer bikes aren't supposed to be jump started. Take the battery off the bike, replace the fuse, charge the battery on a proper charger overnight (as opposed to a battery conditioner like optimate). It should now start fine and not blow the fuse.
If that doesn't sort it, the dealer will need to reset something.
the battery may seem ok, but it's obviously discharging itself or not charging during riding.
Try this...charge the battery with a battery charger. disconnect the charger, and put a volt meter on the battery. Start the bike. Rev up to 2000 RPM. If the voltage is not HIGHER than it was before starting the bike, there's something wrong with the charging circuit. If it IS charging, turn the bike off, and disconnect the battery overnight. If the bike will not start the next day after reconnecting the battery, the battery needs to be replaced.
If the battery is NOT charging at 2000 RPM, the charging circuit is bad, and is likely what is draining the battery overnight.
I have same problem. I was going some where and bike was not running smooth. Sometimes it was giving JERK. After some Kilometers it stopped suddenly after giving Yellow light. Then i tried to start it after 15 minutes it started. Service person changed charger but problem is still there.
Can anyone tell me the reason?

Do you have one of those tiny batteries in there? The ones that lay flat, gel pack,? Did you put the gel in it? Did you charge it up overnight when it was first filled and sealed? I have the same problem, weak battery, same battery, 2002 S4, Even when the battery was new, it was sluggish. My bike sat all winter, soaking wet, never touched it, when I went out to start it, I put the charger on it and it fired right up. Everybody else had to go to the shop to get the carbs cleaned and the batteries replaced. Anyway, check the voltage, it should be 12.6 volts anytime. In a week it will run down, it is a static system.If it doesn't hold a charge, replace it. Or do what I do, charge the thing up every time. A battery tender will do the job. Hope this helps.
