Sounds like the rectifier has gone bad, overcharging the battery and cooking wires. Your best bet here is to take it to a dealer rather than risking putting in new parts then frying them the first time you ride the bike again.

Sounds like your regulator/rectifier is faulty....but it could also indicate an alternator problem. Don't run the bike or it will eventually hurt your battery and/or your alternator (if it hasn't already.)
The wire currents, voltages, etc needs to be checked (from the alternator AND from the rectifier) so I recommend you take the bike to a mechanic unless you have a multimeter and shop manual handy.
I've found Yamaha wiring connections to be slightly weak....and sometimes lead to the premature death of the reg.rectifier. Solution was to 'solder' the connections instead.
Good luck with the FZR.

This may be to the automatic oiler that mixes the oil with the gas. I have a oiler on my 50cc Yamaha Zuma.

Same happended to me with exactly the same motorcycle... I solved the provblem by replacing the crankshaft oil seal on the rightside of the crankcase. It solved the problem immediatly!
