More Kawasaki regulator problems
Seems like the Versys is not the only Kawi model with regulator issues.

Here's the latest recall listed for Kawasaki on the Transport Canada Road Safety Recalls Database:
Transport Canada Recall # 2012086
On certain motorcycles, the voltage regulator can overheat, causing uncontrolled current output which can provide insufficient charge to the battery. This can cause engine stalling and/or an inability to start the engine. Engine stalling would result in lost vehicle propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road condition, and the rider's reactions, could increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the voltage regulator.
Units Affected: 1,347
