    What you are experiencing could be a number of things. Usually the battery is the cause but the output of the stator or the regulator could be the problem too.

    Check the output of the charging system and go from there.

    After Gliders suggestion on checking the charging system I would check the grounds, typically when the head light flares up and down in brightness it is a spike in voltage can also be a bad ground:s
