Try jumping it with the car battery. That will be a conclusive diagnostic test.

So if it jump starts does that mean It's just weak battery? So like a car keep it running for like 30 minutes to charge it up?

Pardon my ignorance but I know nothing about bike mechanics.

Yes. It will establish that the battery needs to be charged.

It remains to be determined WHY the battery went flat.

If everything is in order, running the bike will probably charge the battery.

It'll take me less than half an hour to get to your place if you need help.

That's if my bike starts.

Checked the battery terminal. Clean and perfect. Time to charge it and see where that goes.
