Jump Start

I know this is probably a re-post, but I'm at work and don't have time to search.
Anyway bikes been sitting for a few weeks, battery was drained but not dead. Threw it on the charger for about 5min, she started right up. Rode it to the shop to get tires. I'm picking the bike up in the morning.
My concern is, since i didn't fully charge the battery before dropping it off at the shop. The bike might not start. Can I jump the bike from my ol' ladys car? Yes, the car will be off if attempting.
Just nervous about the stator.

Thanks!

Make sure the car is OFF when you jump start it, and it'll be fine.

If you have a hill, you can bump start it. I stand up and slam my ass down when I drop it in gear to try to start it.

Sounds like you need a new battery. If you have an AGM battery in there (like we all reccomend here) the bike should be able to sit for 6-8 weeks without needing a charge.
