This may or may not help you due to the fact i only have a 19hp kawi , but i had same problem and it was 1 of the fuses that are next to the throttle and stuff .. hope its this simple for you .

My John Deere rider {Kawasaki} had this problem. Replaced the rectifier and all is well. It could be a stator problem, also.

There are a few posts on this topic, but heres a few things to check...
Check voltage at battery when running. should be 14.1 - 15 v
Check fuses
then check for ac output at regulator 26v ac min
check there for dc output if you have the ac
pretty simple
