Arrow Burned out Arctic Cat voltage regulator

I have an Arctic Cat 300 ATV with a fried voltage regulator, Need help trouble-shooting why before I replace this pricey thing. Any/all thoughts greatly appreciated.

Generally, it is within the regulator itself that causes such to fail. But, two other possibilities are: The alternator putting out way too much AC voltage; or, current being fed back into the regulator (if the wiring had been recently serviced and miswired would explain this). I don't have any specifications for the alternator output but this needs to be checked.
