07 1100 Shadow Spriit

The harness connecting the alternator to the rectifier is getting very hot, (discoloring the white conectors and wires, and hot to the touch) Checked the stator resistance, -normal, checked the output AC voltage of the alternator 75v AC at 5000 rpm- Normal. Checked the voltage at the output of the recifier - normal 14 volts at 3000 rpm.

Something is wrong, I am thinking the rectifier, but not sure how to test it for a short. Any thoughts?
