I found this on ebay.
YAMAHA TZR 125 95 4HW REGULATOR / RECTIFIER | eBay
2nd hand but it should work.

If you want new, the price of a call to the stealer might give you a nice surprise...

Edit - also found a list with other bikes that use the same one.

Usually what melts your battery is the a bad stator which causes Reg/rec failure and subsequently a cooked battery!

Hmmmn....its done over a thousand kms after a rebuild of thge original engine....output from stator was ok.....thought the regrec sorted the output to the battery by dissipating any excess current to heat....I ll check the out put from the stator but I,m sure it was ok from memory...

Reg/rec's are much more vulnerable than the stator.

Id go for the reg/rec, mine went bad because of a corroded connetor.

In my carb setting experience, wearing of the internal bits apart from the rubber diaphragm is unusual.

Just sayin'....... might save you a couple of hundred bucks......

Whats up with the jetting/carb?

I agreee with docsherlock: Not a common problem, and when/if thing wear, the carb gets a little ritcher, which should be much of a problem anyway.

This is a lean fueling problem.

See my previous post regarding jetting to sort it.

Indeed it is a lean condition.. to be precise you should either increase your PILOT jet.. the easiest solution is for you to do right now is to use to turn out the fuel screw half turn at a time.

Also, the fact that you say you need to turn twist the throttle is usually fixed by turn in the knob on the LHS of the carb to increase the tickover RPM. It is most likely set too low!

From what kennymact says the bike has had airbox work and possibly exhaust too, so probably needs to go through the whole jetting rigmarole IMHO. One of the reasons I never liked messing with aftermarket exausts and air filters on carbed bikes was the need to do this - much easier to keep 'em standard (or put 'em back that way).

Or get an FI'd bike.

Probably depends on the exhaust and filter mods, doesn't it?
