The charging system is a bit strange ,it’s a form of balanced charging system, in other words it switches in alternator windings as you select lights etc.
THE BEST IMPROVEMENT would be to uprate the system using a modern reg/rectifier ,
Rewire the alternator to single phase from bi phase and running the output of the regulator straight to the battery ,Via the ammeter, change the polarity of the bike to neg earth because the reg works on neg earth only, this wold also mean changing the condenser to a neg earth type.
I would say you have at the moment a switch/wiring fault that is why the emergency starting system does not work or one of the alternator windings is u.s..
AS for the regulator you have seen this is for DYNAMOS not alternators ,take a look at Scott Technicalities, the electrical section
