Probably the rectifier. The rectifier should have some yellow wires connected to it which come out of the stator (under the flywheel); and one red wire which is the +12V lead.

If you disconnect all the yellow wires from the rectifier and take resistance readings on the yellow stator leads, you can eliminate the stator as a problem. Generally the resistance on the alternator windings will be quite low.

Most often the rectifier is the problem and easily replaced.
