RC51 has electrical problem won't start

I was riding around yesterday, stopped for a while and then something drained down the battery, got it jumped a couple times before before replacing the battery, now the bike will not start, lights won't even come on. Any ideas?

Also the gas light started blinking on and off which is unusual.

I hope that's is my only issue. The last change to the bike was a set of Dan Moto Extreme Slipons

Have you got a part number for that Dan? Wouldn't mind having a spare around just in case.

FH012AA is the shindengen part number Russ, it is the mofset type rather than shunt type, runs cooler and delivers a much better regulated voltage, works well with LIPO batteries too
used on late Yams and Kwakkers

So I replaced the Rec/Reg but the battery still won't recharge after one ride. I can charge my battery up and get the bike started, but after 1 ride the battery is drained again; I guess I need a stator now?
