SOURCE: bike does not start
Hi, I would start by checking to be sure the battery has a good enough charge, if not then locate the starter relay and try jumping the two terminals on it and seeing if the bike will start that way if so then you will need to replace the starter relay. good luck

I misunderstood, I thought your battery was discharging DURING the ride. Put your meter in current mode. connect one lead to the battery and one lead to your TomTom wiring while the unit is in the cradle. How much current is is drawing? Now remove the TomTom from the cradle. Is it still drawing the same amount? If not, the TomTom is drawing power even while off and that is draining your battery.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, even if the the stator / charging coil is defective or for that matter even the regulator, the bike should start and run on a fully charged battery. The only problem would be that the bike would die eventually. If haven't been tried, have the battery load tested not just voltmeter test.
Please postback after the load test. Hopefully by then, I would have the wiring diagram.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Common problem with poor quality parts, the regulator is the problem, the generator is working other wise you would not have fried the wiring, you answered your own question. someone telling porkies to get more money from unsuspecting client?
The regulator controls the voltage not the generator, the generator only supplys the voltage it cannot overcharge unless the regulator is not working properly, simple!
