Hey
Just wondering if anyone has had the same issue? Out for a day ride yesterday and about 3-4 hours in the battery light started blinking when i was going at speed.. Pretty bizarre.. I would stop the bike and let it idle and it would stop blinking.. Checked the RPM and at 4540 it starts and below it stops..Also checked with accessories on and off.. no difference

Any help would be appreciated..

Thanks

Put a volt meter on the battery and see how high the voltage is getting , the voltage regulator might be getting a bit wacky.

id say most likely its a crappy connections, clean and tighten cables on battery, yellow and red wire plugs on regulator right behind rad and make sure your ground from motor to frame is intact and clean and tight, if that ground is bad your starter, stator and motor all ground through the stator ground it will start to melt and make your stator put out low voltage
