As stated it could be the regulator / rectifier or the stator.
Do you have a digital volt meter?

Check what it reads at the battery terminals with the bike on and off. When the bike is running it should read something like 14.4 I believe.

it should stay at 14.4 while running if it drops then there is a problem with the stator or rect as stated above

Anything above 12.6 or so at idle is acceptable, 12.9 - 13.2 is very good.
Check it also at 5000 rpm, anything above 13.2 is good.
Once you've checked output give me a call and I can offer some guidance.
