    ........ and you are confident that the problem is in the charging system rather than the battery itself?

  Rob.
I forgot to mention a new battery was put into the bike by the dealer when I bought the bike (6 month ago). I couldn't test ride the bike the first time and the battery wasn't charging properly. Some weeks later it felt weak and I bought a charger. I only charged it once or twice. It was winter and I didn't think much of it due to the few mods on it which could drain battery and the cold weather.
This battery was a cheap one which ended up failing when my bike "accidentally" dropped to the side and saved itself by the crash bars  :020:  :756:
So I replaced it by a Yuasa YTZ14S early Sept. (I was recommended a YTX9-BS by Battery World) but the bigger one fitted perfect.
So as far as I know, battery was amazing, and this was the reason I realised I had an issue after my new one drained recently

get yourself a digital voltmeter (relatively good one $50-$100 range at least.) and test the stator yourself, several resistance measurements with bike off and stator unplugged and and ac voltage tests when running. It's 3 wires, they are shorted to ground or not. shorted to each other or not, or burned open. Test ac voltage with it running, If the resistance and ac voltage tests pass, replace the rectifier after doing those tests, see videos,,,   Also examine the plug where the stator wires plug into the rectifier for any signs of getting hot. those connections fail on a lot of different brands of bikes

Then follow the instructions in the attached Charging System fault-finding-diagram I found on the Web a few years back  :031:

Sorry guys I forgot to update (not use to this forum thing)  :756:

YES! all fixed and much much cheaper than the original $1.7K quoted by Kawasaki  :020:

I was recommended an amazing electrical guy, part time retired and working 2 days a week, and got the stator rewind for $250. He also heavily tested the reg/rec and found no issue with it so no replacement.
My battery was saved despite dying 4 times and the bike was back to me 2 days later.

Never been so happy  :763:
