The following assumes that it will not start because the starter is not running and the engine is not turning over or it is turning over REAL slow:

First check the kill switch and make sure that you haven't forgotten part of the necessary starting procedure.......like pulling in the clutch maybe.

Lacking a voltmeter for some simple tests, you need a new battery.
They can, and do, fail while being serviced by a tender.
IF....you have a proper tender, there is NO need to disconnect it during your "down time".
And there is no need to remove the battery either if you have power nearby.
