can someone tell me if this is normal

2007 gsxr 600. when i start my bike, i noticed the headlights and other lights dim and normal. Its not bad but noticeable . is this suppose to be normal if not, what could be the issue. I have brand new battery probably a few weeks old. i have really ran my bike for long, several starts running it less than 5-10 mins.

Are you saying that the headlight is dimmer with the engine running compared to before you start the bike, or that the headlight dims when starting/cranking the bike?

If itís the former, check your battery voltage at idle and 5k rpm with a digital multimeter set to DC volts. Should be 14 to 15.5V. With the ignition off, should be 12.8V.

If itís the latter, thatís normal.

Does the headlight change in brightness as you increase the revs?

Iíd be checking the battery voltage as I mentioned before.
