Regulator/Rectifier issue?

All, in my ongoing quest to replace every piece of my 02 919, I've been looking at the regulator. The lights surge in rough correspondence with the engine, which I know can be a sign of regulators letting through some AC instead of making nice DC. The bike's also been good at killing batteries, though I think some of that was dodgy wiring. She also has a tendency to gasp a bit at idle. Does it make sense to pull the reg, or are these fairly good signs of a struggling stock reg? I've got a multimeter and I'm used to taking the bike apart, so testing it wouldn't be hard.

The above looks to be a real gem!
What would be nice would be for Rob Tharlson to at least skim it and offer some commentary.
