I talked with Baja Designs the other day about their dual sport parts and when asking about the stock regulator/rectifier the service person mentioned that others have reported that their batteries weren't lasting or holding a charge and he said that it turned out to be the regulator/rectifier. He said that they can fail any time. I do not remember if it was the regulator or rectifier side that was the culprit but worth a check non the less. Good luck

My bike started clicking sometimes and not turning the starter over then it got to the point it only clicked and would never turn the starter over. I thought for sure it was the battery or selinoid(spelling)or maybe a bad connection. After I bought a new battery, it turned out to be the starter. I put a new starter on and its been fine.
