I think it was the stator in the end (installed the 250W uprated one), but I also put in a CDI from a 2006 and an almost-new rectifier from a 2001, so I can't say for sure

Yup, swapped too many components to pin-point the issue, but just glad it's solved now

I left the original ignition coil still on there. Bike is running fine with it, so it was not the issue. Wiring harness left also and Shorai battery still in there. I only replaced the CDI, rectifier and stator.
