Remind us old guys what bike you have.

The wires may be warm as it charges the battery. The regulator gets hot also as it controls the charge rate. Check the 3 yellow wires at the connector to the regulator since they are well known to burn the connection.

Most eliminate the plug altogether and just solder and shrink wrap, or use good crimp connectors on the three yellow wires. Do a search in the box at the upper right "3 yellow wire connector" and you'll find more info than you'll need to know.
