Here's a link to a step-by-step fault-finding flowchart for motorcycle charging systems. I've used this before (I'm certainly no electrical system expert!) to successfully diagnose a bad regulator/rectifier (not on my 10, though):

I hope this helps!

Put a voltmeter on the battery with the engine off. Then start it. You should see about a 1.5V increase with the engine running, around 14.5 volts. If it doesn't increase then the battery isn't getting charged. If the alternator is internally regulated you will have to replace the entire unit (assuming all wiring is good). The 10R has an external reg so its easier to replace. HTH.
