01 GSXR 1k rectifier wire harness question

I'm having a problem with the charging system on my bike, and found that the previous owner has hacked the connector off the wire harness for the rectifier/regulator and simply plugged the wires into the r/r plug. A few of the wires are now crispy critters, so I bought a harness repair and I'm going to splice it in soon. (pics below)

My question is more out of curiousity about the 3 yellow wires coming from the stator...does anybody know if those 3 yellow wires are interchangeable, or do they have to go to a specific position in the connector?

Thanks
Aron

You already found your problem, but for reference, this chart is helpful.

no, they produce about 80-90 v AC , if you have a multimeter you can test across any pair and should get equal results from 1-2 , 2-3 and 1-3, the rectifier is a series of diodes that convert the AC to DC , a heavy load ( dead battery), or overcharging the battery w too big a charger can cause the problem you see

Thanks guys. I already have that diagram printed out. I already tested the stator AT the stator and only found 45v at 5k rpm, so I went ahead and replaced that since it was a bit weak. I have a new rectifier too, just need to repair those wires before I go back and do a full diagnostic to make sure everything is ok. I also had the battery load tested (which was new only a month ago) and it was ok.

the 3 wires can go in any order
they make a complete circuit in any pairing
