So I was riding my 2006 Kawasaki ZX-10R the other day, parked somewhere and then when I went to start it again it didn't start. So I got a jump from someone and it started right up. No problem I thought, I'll ride home and then replace the battery. But I only rode about 5 mins and then when I stopped at a stop sign the bike died on me and wouldn't restart. I had someone I knew come and give me another jump, this time leaving the leads connected for about 20mins before I tried starting the bike to charge the battery. Then I was able to ride all the way home (about 10mins) without the bike dieing on me.

Do I need a new battery or is this something else? Stator?

Thanks.

Definitely sounds like your stator/battery. Find the service manual for your year and do the tests that it calls for. That will tell you exactly if your stator is dying/fried.

You will likely need to replace the battery if your stator is indeed fried.
