As done as you guys are of hearing about this, I'm 10x done dealing w it. NOT FIXED!
Insert every cuss word in the human language here and repeat them for the next 10 minutes, went to take a ride. Fire, Die, Fire Die. Same thing as before. Another $100, Another Reg, Another pulling out the alternator and another month of bullshit diagnosing. It started 4 times this time. I can't even believe I am typing this message right now and not riding. I need medicated for my depression and suicidal thoughts.

Don't take this the wrong way..............find a good auto electrician and give him the problem
As I said numerous times fixing stuff over the internet is very hard, at a guess and maybe stating the bleedin obvious for some reason your alternator is running away with itself, it must be missing some input/output to do this, that's the easy bit, the hard bit is combing through and finding it

I'm sorry to hear that Jason too. I know you have put alot of effort into fixing it but mikef4uk is right...
The regulator rating is suspect in my book.
I definitely would not pull the alternator at this point. The whole bike needs to be diagnosed "holistically" in the present failure mode. Don't mess with the " scene of the crime".
You definitely won't want to hear this Jason but please give the whole bike as it is now to a man who works on electrics every day for his livelihood...and give him some money it is the cheapest and most effective route in the long run.
