I would say check your battery for leaks and or try a battery charger. I had this same prob with a new battery and it wasn't taking a charge even after long rides.

Sounds like you may have several problems. I'd figure out what going on with the headlight and such, and if you're lucky... whatever is causing your lighting problem is also causing your engine problem. So you might fix both at one time.

Found It!!!

WOOO HOOO I found it!! bad ground under left rear fairing in yellow ground block.. anyone had this issue? seems that ground is getting too hot.. but the only way that wires usually get hot is resistance.. so kinda confused why there would be high resistance and no blown fuses?

All the ground wires are green and connect to the frame under the left mid fairing.
