Could be rectifier/regulator or ECM (electronic ignition control module), The rectifier will probably be under the seat. It looks like it is made of "pot" metal and has cooling fins. It is usually attached to the frame by two bolts and has a couple of electrical wiring connectors. Disconnect and unbolt. Look at the back of it, it should be a shiny plastic type material. If it is bad, it will be bulging, charred, maybe have a hole in it, and have that distinct burnt electrical smell. If so, it has let the "magic smoke" out. A new one will be pricey $200 - $400. Try Ebay or used ATV parts websites. I have had some luck there and it was much cheaper. I don't have a clue of how to troubleshoot the ignition box. Sorry, but I hope this helps. I have had this type problem on Artic Cat 4 wheeler and Yamaha outboard. Hope this helps.
