What did you jump your bike with? If it had a weak battery and you jumped it with a car/truck the battery is definately toast now.

Pick up a battery tender also. It will make life a lot easier and help the battery live a longer life.

IF it's not the battery then your stator and/or rectifier are going out my friend.............which is what i think it is. hopefully i'm wrong and it's just the battery though.

Yep I think you got your money's worth from a 5 year old battery. I also just replaced my original battery.
