On my old WR they put the lights after the regulator. The regulator cannot provide the current to the stock headlight, so the battery discharges. A 35 watt lightbulb came with the kit that was half the wattage of the stock. If the person left the stock light in like I did, then you have half an hour before the battery drains out and the CDI quits.
Another great report on Baja Designs electrical engineering talents!
I have heard of so many frustrated customers from their kits it is amazing they have any repeat business. Most people have not been able to get support from them. Good luck but you may end up replacing the Baja components with a real system!

They have told me that they do have a fix, You send them the stator and they connect the two outputs together and sell you a new regulator and its produces 100 watts of power. The other fix would be to run the headlight off the AC circuit by going around the Baja Designs kit. The danger with this option is blowing bulbs.

Good luck with BD. I have my share of problems with them. You may have better luck then I did!

I had very good success with their expensive kit. Just needed to use the lower wattage bulb and not use their kill switch so I could turn off the lights. It was an easy to install kit and I would recommend it to anyone who does not know electricity.
On my new WR, I am going to install my own design (leaving the lights on the AC) using their universal switch. That way I can keep the bright headlight and have a switch to kill the lights. Also, my state does not require turn signals, lighted liscense plate, etc., so it is a waste for me to get a complete kit.
