Tell us what the voltage at the battery is:
1) With the bike off
2) With the bike idling
3) With the bike revving in mid range

i can power 4 led t/s 1 ic horn and a led tail light and still put out 13.2
and the headlight is on a separate leg of the stator

The stock stator has two circuits. One that charges the battery the other, runs the headlight. You modify the stator to combine the two circuits, use a larger regulator/rectifire to handle the increased output. This setup requires the headlight to be run off of the battery as there is no longer a lighting output from the stator.
LOL, this all assumes you do not have a contant drain of some sort. You can easily check for this by putting a small light between the battery cables (disconnect the negative wire at the battery, put like an 1156 (turn signal incandesant bulb) to the wire and battery and see if it lights, with the bike switch off. If it does you have a circuit constantly draining. After the light buld test, put a small amp meter there and see the draw (switch off or you may cook your meter). A tiny draw (a few milliamps) is to be expected as some power flows to keep the clock working.
