i would almost bet it is the regulator/rectifier if you get it started you can check the output on the regulator usually on the side of the case.sorry i dont know specific details about your bike.

Your battery looses about 1% per month sitting. Shooting 50 amps into your little battery didnt do it any good even though you felt better. You might have a dead cell but I doubt it in a 4 month old battery. You can do a hydro test on it (good reading is 1200) and a volt reading (above 10 is ok) or maybe just replace it.
I suggest you put it on trickle charge for 24 or more hours.
If you regularly let your bike set for more than a week, you may want to consider adding a fuel stabilizer which will prevent or at lease reduce the harmful buildup of varnish and other gunk in your fuel system. I like Sta-bil but there are others. You might inquire at the Honda shop what they recommend. You might also want to use something in the fuel to clean the system - popular is injector cleaner but I am not personally endorsing this. Ask the parts guy at your Honda shop.
I hope this helps you ...

yes u can, but it has to be no more than a 1 amp output or you will fry the battery cells, most auto parts stores sell these Motorcycle battery chargers.
here is a link to a good charger at a good price.

Yes. Should look pretty much line the one you will take out. Make sure the + is attached to the + wire and the - is attached to the - wire.

You can damage electrical components if you do not run the correct voltage battery. If your battery is below 12 volts replace it. If you take off the seat you can easily test the stator with a volt meter. Find the stator plug with three yellow wires. You should have continuity between any combination of the yellow wires. You should have no continuity between any of the yellow wires and ground. That is the test of a good stator. If your bike is still losing charge after those checks , you are probably looking at a new regulator/rectifier.
