Not charging

I have done a search on these forums and have found that the reg-rectifier may be in need of upgrade.

My friend has asked me to look at his RC. It is not charging.
He bought a new battery and still has the same issue.

Should I check the regulator rectifier first?

I am a busy man, and would very much appreciate any help I could recieve in advance, so my wife doesn't get down on me for being in the garage all the time.

Here is a link to download a manual and I would look at the stator too.

Well. I have the bike now.
I charged the battery. (new battery)
It starts and runs fine. Even when the bike is running I see 14.45 volts at the battery.
If I ride the bike for about 5 minutes and turn it off, the voltage is not high enough to re-start the bike.
Even when the votage is showing 12.78 volts.
I downloaded the manual listed above, but it does not have values to check for the electrical components.
Can any body help me out with a link to electrical testing for the bike?

So, can anybody tell me what the values are for the electrical components?
Or at least a link to them?
