Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, pls try recharging the battery again. Remove the connector to the voltage regulator. Start/run the bike. If it lasts more than "3-5 minutes" then you have just confirmed a defective regulator. The voltage regulator would look something like below image.
This page may give you additional insight.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like someone has customised your bike - does it have a RH switchgear?
there shd be 3 connectors for the RH switch in headlamp - a 3 pin & 2 singles, the 3 pin has 2x orange/white + 1x yellow/green, this connects to 1x orange 1x orange/white +1x yellow/green wire which are for the kill + start
The singles are 1x orange/green + 1x white (loom side) which go to 1x orange + 1x white respectively, these are for the brake light
If you are keeping the kill sw then its only the yellow/green wire that can be discarded.You can also follow it back to the starter disconnect sw - junk that - keep tracing it back to the starter solenoid & junk that too. If you want to keep the electrical accessory output terminal then connect that straight to the battery or to the orange wire from the ign sw to the fuse box. You can also junk the thick wires from the solenoid, 1x to batt + 1x to the starter motor
You can junk the starter motor too ( 2 bolts then pull away from sidecase & up at the rear) but make sure you block the hole up!
If you want to bypass the ign sw then disconnect the 4 block from it & jump the red to the orange & also the brown to grey (for lights etc)
Good luck & ride safe

SOURCE: My BT1100 will not start.
Normally I would say it was dirty terminals, but a jump start should by pass that. Because of the clicking sound, start with the terminals, then try to find your stater motor and try to identify where the sound is actually coming from (ie take the seat off). The solenoid is the next thing that makes that noise, and finally if all else fails, then your starter motor is cactus. I cannot find a manual for you, but have a look yourself, you might find a comparable one that will help you.

check battery voltage while cranking, check battery leads and earth wire, sometimes a fully charged battery, if its getting old, still will not start the bike, will it start with jumper leads? The clicking is usually low voltage.
