regulator questions

ok I'm new to working on motorcycles. worked on many cars and their electrical systems but new to motorcycles. so real quick question and it may sound stupid but what are some tell tale signs a reg is going out? what kind of quick tests can be done before I get the multimeter out and test stuff in those super cramped qquarters?

Put the voltmeter on your battery terminals (red = positive, black = negative) and see what your voltage is cold. Should be around 12.6 v. Turn on the bike and increase the roms to around 3-4K - voltage on your battery should jump to 13.5-14.5 v, since the charging system is now working and outputting enough to run the bike and recharge your battery.
