Replace it and see - especially if it looks like this...

Might want to replace battery as well.

Use the search facility as there are many previous threads about the R/R (Regulator/Rectifier) problems, along with the CCTs which are the two major reliability weaknesses on the VTR. Sort those two out the way, so you can continue riding worry free.
