Hi @bozmandan ,
 
Here’s a link to the relevant page in the [https://www.manualslib.com/manual/968383/Suzuki-Gs1000.html?page=170#manual|service manual] that describes how to test the regulator. The following two pages elaborate on how to test the rectifier.
 
They’re probably combined in the same housing.
 
Admittedly it doesn’t state where the rectifierregulator/rectifier unit is actually located but it must be very close to or a part of the alternator. There should be 5 wires attached to the rectifier, ''Yellow, White/Red and White/ Blue'' from the alternator, ''Red'' from the battery and ''Black/White'' from earth and also a ''Green/White'' coming from the alternator as well which goes into the regulator section. so it should be easy to spot.

Hopefully this is of some help
