Hello all, this is my first post on this forum ever. I have a few concerns about my 2006 VFR800. First of all, I bought it used at 44,000, it has racked up to 62,000 in a year. Do standard maintenance and all to it. The first thing is the first gear engine squeal. Is this normal? Is this an indicator of being in first gear? Second thing, before my first battery died out which was still OEM, I heard these secondary squealing noises from all gears above first at all RPMs. I could not trace this problem to anything. Now for the real question, the first time the battery died it seemed as though it all happened suddenly in a day. No hiccups at all until I stopped at a gas station to fill it up. Then it refused to start at all, but luckily people are saints and pushed me to jump start it. After reading all causes, I switched out the battery for a Shorai 18 amp variant, replaced the R/R with Rick's, swapped all lights for HID LEDs. It died again today after the replacement of about a week of riding. I have not checked the stator, fuses, all wirings to ground, dash, harnesses, or other leaks. I am trying to narrow down possibilities to save time and even money, this seems like a specific piece of equipment that burned out, hoping you guys can help pinpoint the dilemma. Thanks in advance.

" A dirty fuel filter is a common cause for a voltage regulator to fail on a fuel-injected bike. " I found this quoted on the Powerlet website and thought that it would be interesting to hear people's opinions on it given that the R/R is the the main area of sudden failure on the otherwise indestructible VFR's. Scroll down to Table 4 " What if I don't have enough power?" #3 http://www.powerlet.com/learningCenter/excessCapacity
