Battery problem or bad starter?

Could anybody help me identify what could be causing my starter to spin and stop, and eventually stop being responsive at all, until being left alone for a bit, and then spin and stop again.
Note: the more i hit the starter the weaker it gets until not responding at all, thats why I am betting on the battery being the problem.

An easy way to tell if it's a battery issue is to jump it from an auto battery, which has way more amps than a motorcycle battery. Just be sure the car's engine isn't running when you do this. If it cranks with the car battery, more than likely the motorcycle battery is weak and may need charging or replacement. Yousa makes very good batteries.
