    Did your rotor fail by having low resistence? If so, it could pull too many amps and drop your battery voltage when you need the most amps: when starting the bike. I'd also check your resting voltage, with the bike on and off, the voltage under a load, and check the resistance of your batter cables as well as the resistance between the neg battery post and the mounting bolts on the starter. Then you'd have some numbers as to what's happening with your electrical system.
