It's a weak stator on the KLX450R whose outputs are split - one to the regulator/rectifier and one directly to the headlight. The stock headlight was operating (not very well) on the direct AC output and the ADV Monster LED light needs a 12 VDC source.
I rewired the bike to have a relay controlled, direct battery 12 VDC (with a fuse) to the LED light, but it just drained the Antigravity Lithium battery.
So getting it rewound at Baja Designs & using their upgraded regulated regulator is the plan. That'll give me 100 watts or so, and the most the bike will need is maybe 50 watts (28 watt headlight, 2 X 5 watt fans, dual sport kit lights and a GPS later).
