first question, did you actual check the oil level and confirm it is good, and that the oil is fine?
Don't run an engine without oil, bad things happen.
once you know your oil is ok then move on to the not starting.
suck, squeeze, pop, fooie,
does the engine suck in air, are the filters clogged, mouse nest in the intake? does the engine get enough fuel? are the injectors working?
does the engine have compression?
does the engine have spark?
finally does the exhaust work.

You F4i guys, would his starter crank with a bad kickstand or clutch interlock switch?
EDIT: Just re-read the OP; ya, take a good look at the charge on that battery. Quick note, dont ever start your bike and let it idle for five minutes.
The battery will NOT recharge at idle. All your doing is stealing the AMPS that you needed in the first place.
Also, when you just let it idle like that (for short periods) the engine gets warm, pipes get warm, fan will work like 90 to keep it cool. That alone kills the battery.
All your doing to the bike is taking the oil sheen off the cylinders, and allowing moisture to form in the exhaust pipe. Neither of those are good things.
