Question about 2005 Hyosung GT 650 S
Hi and welcome to fixya,
The ticking can be caused by either poor battery charge or the carbon brush on the starter motor is worn out. Make sure that the battery has the correct charge or is fully charged before attempting to start. If you are in a hurry, you may keep pressing the starter button until it kicks in (well, this is if you're in a hurry). But for a more sure fix, you either check the battery, the carbon brush (on starter) or the relay switch (which makes the ticking sound)- the contacts may not hold enough conductivity to produce power needed by the starter motor.
Hope this info helps,

There are several variables to what you are asking. First the alarm system has taken I'm going to say at least a month to drain the battery so it's just lifeless. Now you add a charger, is it a "battery tender" one that is to maintain a battery or an actual charger? Is the charger a trickle type or are you trying to fast charge it? How long has it been on charge? These are some of the variables to consider. Okay on the "positive" side so to speak IF your charger is a battery tender it may take several days before there is enough power in the battery to activate the starter, even then the starter may engage but take most of the power to turn the engine and leave nothing for the ignition to operate. The electronic ignitions on these motorcycles needs at least 10 volts to produce spark at the plug. You didn't say how long the charger was on the battery or how cold it is where the motorcycle is being stored. Somethings I would not do first is be in a hurry and cram a ton of charge in that battery all at once and expect it to survive. Is the battery frozen? A battery that is power less will freeze bulge the casing and break the plates inside resulting in an internal short which then will appear to be taking charge but return little or no power after sustained length on a charger. Motorcycle batteries are really small in comparison to a car battery they also deliver a lot less cranking amps so the charging should be relative to the battery size. If I was in your situation I would remove the battery set it on a flat wooden board connect about a 2 amp charger for several hours until it appeared to have some power then possibly up that to 4 amp. So not to give you faults hopes the battery may have a shorter life now after this ordeal. Sorry for both the good and bad news.
