Fortunately I work for a shop and we have a very nice midtronics charging system tester. Here is what I found: Battery tested at 145cca after charging - which is ok. Battery terminals both tight and clean. Cranking voltage is good (9.76v), but there is no charging voltage (0v). Checked all the fuses including the main, checked for power at the headlight harness with bike running - none.
There was another thread on whining noises - I have noticed it lately but took it to be the fuel pump. No whining noise today!
On the very bright side, turns out my in service date was last October, not last August like I thought, so I still have warranty. My BCAA+ membership covers towing so it is off to Burnaby Kawasaki first thing in the morning.
Thanks for the input, I'll update here once it is fixed.
