FZR1000 electrical issue?

OK I am going nuts, I own a 1990 FZR1000 and just recently it has been dying on me when I stop at a light. If I have the blinker on and apply the brake it dies? SO I looked into the R/R and replaced it, it still does it. I am lost maybe someone can help me. PLEASE

The voltage is right it is getting between 13v and 14v, at 3000rpm's. I have been checking all the wiring also maybe a short somewhere?

It almost sounds like it's a weak charging system. You may be getting enough voltage. But, not enough amperage to get through. Maybe pull the stator cover and see what's going on in there. the bike is 20 years old...
