mine do this a little bit after I first start the bike from being cold, but I never notice it when I'm riding...

could be the voltage regulator?

Rayzor, I'm not an expert at all, but I had similar power problems with my gixxer and it turned out to be just my regulator rectifier. My battery would keep dying. My headlights were dim and if I put my brights on, my guages would jump down to zero. My horn was always faint no matter what. I acheived these results with a brand new battery. Hope this helps a little.

P.S. My regulator+rectifier was $175 from the shop. It hasn't come in yet but I know the shop I goto is usually a little high sometimes.

Check the plugs all over the bike..
They get old and the contacts dont conduct power as well... This makes the lights dim like that...

I don't know if this concept work on a bike have not tried it yet but on a vehicle if you have vehicle running and remove the positive post of the battery and the car dies then it would be your alternator not doing its job, now on a bike since it is seperated rect/stator you can individual replace. Same concept though

is your battery charged at all?
Since your bike has a generator, it doesn't really keep it charged, and so therefore you may want to test the battery. Often times you'll see where you charge the battery and/or replace it with a new one that's fully charged... that your bike will wake up and all electricals will function right. I had this happen to me too. I charged my battery and then it had a huge burst of power like it used to have. It's just a thought for you maybe.
