motorcycle help please!

Im not really familiar with bikes, i just know how to ride so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated..i have an 07 600 gsxr

So recently I've encounter some problems. like my high beams out and then my brand new battery dies within a week . So i replace the battery again and charge it before i install it on the bike. And it died on me again approximately 20 mins down the road...Could it possibly be a shortage on the high beam?? and also if anyone knows how much it would cost to fix an oil leak on the left engine cover area.. Thanks !

The two problems may be related. You may be leaking at the stator cover.
