Question about 2004 Honda CRF 230 F
If the battery has been sitting flat... it is probably now stuffed. When left flat for more than a day or 2, a problem develops where the lead plates of the battery become coated with sulphate increasing the batteries internal resistance. Whilst it may measure 12 volts, when you draw any current from it, the volts die away.
Are you able to put a 12 volt lamp across the batt and see what happens?
Do you have any electrical activity when you try to start it, clicking, lights, anything??
Let me know and we can work from there
