Your rectifier is the problem .A rectifiers job is to save the wiring from over heating .it will only allow a set & safe voltage through your wiring ,any highter .and the wires will melt .They do break down ,either letting in too much current or to little .The new unit can be tested quite easily .Connect all the wires start bike check the voltage out put from the battery .13.4 volts is the hightest it should go ,no more .

SOURCE: Battery not charging
run an ohm test on the stator wires, make sure you get readings through all combinations of any 2 wires. if you don't get an ohms reading between 2 wires that means you have a broken stator winding and the stator needs to be replaced. hook up a volt meter to your battery and test battery voltage at rest (bike off), at idle (bike on and idling should be at least 12.5 - 13 volts), and steady around 3 - 4000 rpms (should be around 13-14.5 volts. if it exceeds 15 volts your regulator is bad and needs to be replaced. if all numbers are about what I said, have your battery tested. If your battery is over 1.5 years old it should be replaced anyway.
