Question 530EXC Headlight, Taillight, Brakelight not working

Suddenly the head light, the tail light, and the brake lights stopped working on my 2009 KTM 530 EXC. Turn signals, horn, odometer, starter motor all work fine. Bike runs fine. I am trying to find what is common to the non-working bulbs in the schematic and it appears that there is a yellow wire going between the generator and the rectiifier that is common. Has anyone had this problem before? Thanks

Yep, the voltage regulator is bad. No change in battery voltage whether shut off or idling or reving. 12.4 volts . With each start of the bike, the battery is going down about .05-.1 volts

Well, I will know soon enough if the regulator/rectifier is the problem. I've gone ahead and ordered one. I hope it is as the electrical components are not returnable.
