My Vulcan would not start so I jumped it with my truck and it ran fine. I let it run for about five minutes. As soon as I removed the jumper cables it stalled. Is this simply a bad battery or something more sinister. Thanks for y'alls help.

check the battery to make sure its full of water first
then charge it 100%
then have it load tested at car/bike shop.... should hold 10.5v for 10sec +
then make sure your bikes charging system is working
test at battery posts
bike off - 12.5v+
idle - 13v+
3000rpm - 14.5v+
if its not charging then its either stator or reg/rec
