Vtr firestorm speedo/ tacho problem - is it the regulator rectifier?

HiI have a 1998 Vtr firestorm and recently the speedo has been dying. The bike starts up fine and will go for maybe 2km or so then the speedo needle will drop and the tachometer stops counting the mileage. The bike otherwise runs and doesn't cut out. A bit of history... Over xmas the battery was going dead and needed charging several times but held charge for a day or two. Then i had the bike stood for a few weeks and when i went to start it wouldn't and noticed the 30amp main fuse had gone so replaced this. ...

VTR in the rain

I got a VTR 1000 firestorm last october and love it!!! The only problem is, it's prone to losing power and then cuts out completely when its raining. Living in the west of Scotland....thats not good news. it's really made me nervous about driving when theres a chance it might rain. I fitted a fenda extenda to the front and had the spark plug caps replaced at the last service, but i'm still having trouble in the wet. It seemed to get better for a while but didnt last long. Can anyone recommend a solution please?
