I don't know what your problems were (I guess I missed that thread), but did you ever check the output of the charging system at the battery too? If so, was it giving too much or too little charge?

Sometimes the "burned" look on those terminals can be considered normal for a 15 yo bike. It may not be the culprit, but doing as Brian suggests is a great idea to start.

I'd also start looking for a new R/R (used actually would be best if you can find good ones 'cause they're a lot cheaper).

No, I'm sorry, I didn't mean find a "new RR", R/R is short for regulator/ rectifier (the part you took a picture of.

I don't know what the history of issues is with your current bike, but those bikes are typically pretty dang reliable, even if they are 15 years old.

Those ends just get nasty over time and they melt due to the resistance they build up. Bike vibration (High frequency) causes the connectors to arch and they degrade over time. It is very typical of the CBR series. Make sure that when you cut the wires off of the plug that you get them back in the same place on the R/R.
