Hey I’m Craig

I’m buying a 2015 Street 500 I went to look at one today and the battery was dead, the owner said it hadn’t run for about 6 months. We Jump started it with jumper cables but everytime I took the cable off the terminal the bike would just stop. I’m just wondering if anyone knows if this is just a dead battery problem or an alternator problem?

The Generator doesn't put out much at Idle. Most likely a Dead Battery. Remove it and have tested.
