Thats usually the rectifier that goes, a rectifier and a regulator server two different purposes, it just so happens that the rectifier and regulator are built into the same unit on bikes but are not the same thing. The rectifier converts the AC electrical from the Stator into DC.
Plus if the regulator was before the battery, your lights would dimm if the battery got low on juice because the voltage coming from the battery to the bike's electrical would not be constant.
