As I read that a 2nd time, I wonder if your Alternator is bad? (If so, then that would explain the dead battery, and also why the bike kinda starts but won't sustain running)

Regardless, if you jump start via a Car Battery and it runs steady... then the culprit is probably either the bike battery or alternator.

FYI, Here's a similar discussion that mentions other things to check:
