bike losing power

I have a 2002 r6

I wanted to go riding last night so i went down the street to fill up on gas and when i went to start it back up the battery was too low to turn it over.

After jump starting the bike, the bike would last 1-2 minutes, lose power, and die while I was riding, leaving me stranded

This morning i switched out the battery and rode it around for 10-20 minutes with no problems and after i turned it off the bike the battery did not have enough energy to start.

After leaving it alone for a few hours the bike starts up with no problems....

I have checked the plug to the rectifier for burnt out wires but the plug has no problems.

Could the problem be the rectifier itself or is it more like a stator/generator issue?

i dont think the battery is the problem because i got the battery from my other bike and put it in to test. After riding it and turning it off it does not have enough energy to start the bike again.

The bike wont die while idle i dont think. After jump starting it the bike was ok but died while riding it after 1 minute.

thanks for all the help.

Gonna get a multimeter and check if the battery is getting charged. I really think it something electrical.
