06 ZX10R died when riding

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?

You may need a new battery but your charging system needs to be checked and fixed.

you could check the stator to see if it is properly charging but it likely easier to just hop on a new battery plug it in and see what happens. if that solve the problem long term you should be set. From my understanding stators are more of a nuisance to change than "hard" to do.
