Electrical problem

Have an 07 750. Bike died while riding recently with battery drained. Replaced r/r to find out out the 3 prong plug was corroded and broken on the bike side. The corrosion pushed the female pins off the Male pins (no plastic plug housing for female side). I put the pins in the way I thought they went however now when I hit high revs, the headlights will cut off. Cluster stays lit and no other problems are present. Could I have the wires for the rectifier hooked up wrong? Bike running battery voltage is 13.8, 14.5 with high beam on and revs at 5k.

The voltage readings are good so you have your charging system fixed. Do make sure that the connections between the R/R and the stator are really solid to avoid a future problem.

There are really no connections between the charging system and the high beam, either electrically or physically.

Does the bike stumble at all when the headlight goes out or continues to pull normally?

Are your battery connections clean and tight?

One thought. Are you sure you are not bumping the starter button when you open the throttle?

The headlights are shut off when the starter is actuated on that year bike.

Check your head light harness high revs cause more vibration and a loose connection may becoming disconnected .the rectifier could just be a coincidence

I appreciate the replies guys! Replaced the stator to fix the broke plug issue and put some dielectric grease. I ended up putting into he stock headlights and think that solved it. Gonna say bad ballasts on cheap hid's. Gonna test ride now and see if it was really that. Again, thanks for taking the time to read and give me some help.

Well I found the problem. Was not the hid's. Was the plug for the lights themselves. Hot wire broke off in two spot. At the plug and where the prev owner spliced. Awesome.
