I have just got my bike together, converting it from a track bike (all "legal" wires were just cut, headlight, signals, etc.
). I am pretty sure I wired everything up correctly. Multimeter and wiring diagram in hand...

Everything seems to work as it should when the bike is just on the battery. When I rev the bike up when running though the headlight dims and the signals start to glow.

The same thing happens with a battery from another bike, and my brand new lithium. 3 regulators (maybe all bad??).

Ideas? I need this thing ready to go by Thursday...

Could be a ground issue on the bike. Also, stator could be on the way out.

My lights would dim on revving when my regulator was faulty. A replacement cured the problem.

looks like it is a bad ground on the headlight. Will confirm tomorrow.

Its backfeeding somewhere, so I second the bad ground - but check you haven't got a dark brown (signal) plugged into a light brown (switched power). Also, unplug the flasher relay & see what happens...
