What's up everyone. Having a problem with my 97 ZX600. The past two weeks I've had to change my headlights because they kept blowing out. I've now notice it does this when the RPMs get over 4000 when I turn bike on. Now I having a problem with the battery not staying charged in between rides. It's a new battery so I know that isn't the problem. could it be my stator and rectifier are going out? someone help me please!!

Sounds like the rectifier, I would not keep trying to run it until you get a different one as you could damage the sudo ecu. Geta multimeter and monitor the batery voltage as the rpm's go up to 4K. You may need to check both DC and AC as it sounds like the diods are letting AC through.
