Okay so long story short, the Gixxer broke down and was completely dead so I decided to get;

Fitted it Thursday and everything was good the bike started but Monday started giving me problems.
Starting to analyse the voltage of the bike and it doesn't seem to be charging. I drive 12 miles to and from work and this was the outcome;
Before Journey - 12.88v
After Journey - 12.33v
After 5k RPM - 12.34v

Any ideas why this could be? Starting to give up the will to live!!

The generator doesn't really do anything until after you've started the engine, so if the bike is "completely dead" it can't really be the cause, at least not the immediate cause. I find it also hard to understand how replacing it would bring the bike back to life, unless either your "completely dead" is not really complete, or you replaced the battery as well. Try going through the troubleshooting process in the service manual, measuring the output of the stator, then the R/R. If both check out OK, but you still aren't getting >14V on the battery at 5000rpm, check the condition of the wiring between R/R and battery, looking for overheated, warped, melted, corroded, loosely fitting or dirty contacts and wiring.
