I have an 89 XR600R that I converted over to a DC system using a Ricky Stator. I am using a high quality bridge rectifier / voltage regulator for my DC side which runs my signals, horn, brake light and charges a 1.2AH battery, and an AC regulator to run my 90/100W headlight bulb. The system works great, though I noticed after 6 months of riding about once a week, the battery stopped holding a charge. This was a slow progression, and it eventually got to the point where I couldn't ride it anymore. For example, if I were to turn on a blinker, or the brake light, the headlight would go very dim. This was strange since the headlight ran on the AC side of the stator, and the rest of the stuff on the DC side. I thought maybe the battery was so far gone that it was shorting itself out, putting a huge draw on the entire system. So I purchased a new battery, and once I installed it, everything was working great again. I rode the bike 2 or 3 times, then I stored it for about 3 weeks. When I went to ride it again, before I started it, I noticed the battery was completely dead. It looks like I may have a draw somewhere even when the key is off. This draw is what most likely cuased my first battery to wear out so quickly. I plan on going through the system and troubleshooting it. But I was wondering if anyone has any quick pointers at why this could possibly be happening. Thanks.
