OK.  This is all good information.  I'm going to check the terminal voltage and see what I get at idle.  I replaced the R/R awhile ago with a much better, but maybe the stock stator killed this one too.  I really hope not.  Stators aren't cheap and they're buried down in there.  I currently don't have a garage where I can leave pieces all over. 
And what of the one headlight that just suddenly went out?  I determined it's not the lamp, so it must be something in the wiring.  I've been wondering if that's where my battery drain is located.

That depends on whether the fuse is only for the grips, and is the fuse for both the control side, or the switch, or the main drain side of the relay, or the actual power to the grips. Hopefully not doing the old suck eggs, but the whole idea of the relay is to allow a low power switching of a high power circuit, and depending on the location of the drain, you need to understand the relay incorporates two circuits, and the drain may be on either, both, or between, so removing the fuse from the switch side won't help if the drain is on the high power side, if the relay is bleeding power between circuits, or providing a path for power due to corrosion/water inside.

Removing the fuse has the same effect !!

Pull the relay anyway, if its just for the grips.
You should at least be able to see if the drain has stopped, and you'll know your working in the correct area.

I have the fairing off so that I could access all the connections! so yes it is easily got at, I will pick up another relay from the local autoelectrical shop and replace it and see where we go from here!

Relay fault sounds likely.
Can you pull the relay easily?

By power cable for the grips I mean the cable that plugs into the aux socket incorporating the relay and associated wiring for the grips and rocker switch, As a matter of interest the relay gets warm even with the ign off! Possible Culprit??

That would be my guess, yeah possible
