So I installed the new MOSFET r/r. I took the old stator output and put the three wires to the new r/r then I have the inner terminal to battery + and outer terminal to battery -. When I turn the ignition, the positive now shorts to ground. Did I miss something or is there a ground to chase?

There's no additional connections to make ... maybe double-check that 'inner' and 'outer' terminals on the R/R are actually the polarity you think they are with it disconnected from the harness.

I will check when I get the chance. I think I should get a current flow only from + to - when using the diode setting on the multimeter. I suspect I just have a ground somewhere because the voltage immediately drops to zero when I turn the ignition. I think I did it with the r/r unplugged as well but can't remember off the top of my head.

The places I'm thinking to check for a ground are:
Ignition switch
Gauges and their lights
Horn
Flasher relay
Old r/r wiring
Engine cutoff switch
Lighting switch in right handlebar
Head and taillight
Turn signal lights
