Melted yellow wires

I sold my bike today. The new owner was riding it home and the engine died. I refunded his money, got the bike flat bedded home and found 3 yellow wires on the left side of the bike cooked at the bullet connectors. There were also some flattened spots on 2 of the wires that had shorted together. They are behind the left side cover.
Are these stator wires?
If I repair the wiring at that spot, will the bike again be good to go?
Could the stator be fried because of this? Or did the stator cause the wire melt?
How about the R/R, or any other electrical device?
What gauge wire do I need?
Can anybody give me a link to a way to test both the stator and R/R?

Thanks in advance. I am no electrical guru!!

If it wasn't for time, everything would happen at once!!
