Yes it has to be full cycles let it cool down between each.

This might help.

So just finished the 3rd cycle and went to start it again and it would not start so think getting somewhere (only try to narrow it down before having it plugged in 3/3/21) so just checking prices on stuff that link by the way is great so is it a stater or alternator
Thanks

It could still be something simple, be hopeful.

How old & how many miles? Any extra elec gizmo's? Only asking 'cos never had one fail......yet.

Battery voltage when running should be around 14v. When my battery went (actual battery died and voltage colapsed) I had the engine management light came up, had it reset by mechanic rather than the 3 cycles, as I was going away. On the other hand when my regulator went, it did cause the stator to rattle. I replaced my regulator for a genuine. The alternator on the early tigers have a very high output. There are a lot of "look alike " replacements on the market, but many don't have the capacity to deal with the tigers output.  My bike 2012 Tiger road.

The charging system relies on the regulator disposing of excess power as heat. Unfortunately less extras mean more work for the regulator. My battery failure and regulator failure were separate incidents. Bike has done nearly 40K (miles)
