In the multi-conductor connector for the regulator/rectifier located under the seat, there is a larger red wire. Disconnect the two halves of the connector and check the spade/pin terminals for corrosion, etc. Especially those for the larger red wire. The pin connectors for this wire have a tendency to fail as they are carrying a lot of amperage.

If toasted, the simply fix is to go around the connector and use a crimp/butt connector to tie the red wires back together outside of the OE connector.
