I don't know how universal this statement is, but some of the Kawasaki KZ (of the same era) models have to have the R/R (maybe stator, I don't remember.) updated as well to charge lithium properly. I have not done the switch but some of the owners on the KZ forum have had issues with lithium batteries and getting a modern replacement charging system fixed it.

This is the thread I was thinking of.
My herd includes:
1975 Honda Civic CVCC 4spd
1981 Kawasaki KZ750E
1981 Kawasaki KZ650 CSR
1983 Kawasaki KZ1100-A3
1986 Nissan 300zx Turbo 5 spd
1995 Chevy Astro RWD
1995 Mercury Tracer
2004 Chevy Astro AWD
2017 Kawasaki VersysX 300
