Wow! Good work Dave! Those are the kind of mystery failures that can be very hard to pin down! Too few of us check our wiring looms for abrading against metal. I also see some wear on my loom up around the central frame tube around the steering head. In places I've wrapped a bit of bicycle tube in critical areas. Not noticed any abrading near the rectifier/regulator ... but will FOR SURE look in that area now.
This kind of thing could cause a fire ... and really ruin your whole day. So glad you got to it before any damage was done!
Plus One for good maintenance!
