Hello, I have a 1995 T309 Black Speed Triple, I use it as a daily driver during the summer up here in the north. I am front Alta, Norway it’s midnight sun and daylight all summer up here so my lights is not my biggest concern. But still I’ve notice that my headlight is poor and weak on idling and it gets stronger when I rev up my engine. Is this a common problem?

Sounds like your charging system is on it's last legs. I don't know the specifics on those old ones but it was def a weakness on the 1050's. Typically the stator burns up one or two of it's three legs so the idle voltage drops. It will eventually kill your battery. You can check the voltage on each leg coming off the stator to ground, they should all be the same.
