Start with charging and load testing the battery. Then test the stator, to test the stator on the bottom of the right down tube is the plug that goes from the stator to the voltage regulator. With a multi meter, read the voltage from the stator, I forget the exact values but as you rev the motor the voltage should climb if it dosn't your stator is bad. If the stator is good take a reading again with the motor running at the battery cables, again I forget the exact value but you should have a steady reading at the battery, if it isn't and fluctuates it is bad.

If the bike just suddenly lost power but it still ran, I would suspect the carburetor slide diaphragm provided it still has the original Keihen CV carb. If the diaphragm gets a hole in it, the slide will not go up and down in the carb.
Remove the air filter cover and air filter so that you can see inside the carb. Standing away from the mouth of the carb, rev the engine and see if the slide moves up and down. If so,it's fine. if not, the diaphragm has probably got a hole in it. To get to the diaphragm, remove the carb from the engine and remove the top. With the top off and the long spring out, you can easily remove the diaphragm and the slide. When replacing, be very careful not to pinch the new diaphragm.
One other thing that it could be is something has caused a restriction in the exhaust system. This would probably only be possible in the case of single mufler system.

Testimonial: "Most of this I have tried, but the responses have certainly verified my thoughts and justified the direction I chose to go in troubleshooting. "
Honda always grounds the turn signals separately (usually a green wire)not directly to the frame.Not hooking up the running light should not effect anything except forward visibility to other motorists. If you have a two prong flasher relay, go get a cheap flasher relay ($5-$10) and replace it. The only problem I have ever heard of when switching to LED turn signals is a flicker / fast flash instead of a normal slow flash. This is remedied by adding diodes to the wires.
