I think you need to simulate hot stop and go traffic to check the VR.
It may check okay when not too hot but may act up when really hot with no air flow.
My VR used play up with the headlight going out when really hot after stop and go traffic. Once moving and getting some air flow and things cooled down a bit everything came good until the next time with lots of traffic.
Reg from a 999 fixed it.
By the way the VR rectifier on these are a known common fault if it has not been replaced. They were replaced free of charge at the time if they acted up and there was a upgrade heat shield kit to go on the bike supplied by the factory at the time
