Won't Idle

I have a 02' VN with about 7600 miles on it and have owned it for almost 4 months. I have never encountered a problem with the bike until now. yesterday I was at work and had my bike outside. long story short HEAVY rains soaked my bike, and when I tried to start it it wouldn't turn. All that happened was the solenoid clicked. I let the bike dry off inside overnight and tried again today again same thing happened. I figured the battery had drained so I used a jumper and got the bike started. However, now my bike will not idle. I was able to drive back to my house carefully. However, the bike will not run without throttle, period. Even when I have the choke on it seems I have to have the throttle out somewhat. When it runs it sounds like it runs well, but again will not idle. Any suggestions?

first thing you need is a AGM battery. Next adjust your ide screw up a tad and see if it helps.

Your prob could be electrical but also fuel But from the sounds now it looks like you need a new battery. What kind is in it now??
