Is this fried?

So after running wires to find out why my ignition/tether&kill switch was not shutting down my machine. I ran all wires and found that my ground wire(brown wire) to side of motor is bad. Anyways while checking all my wiring I removed the voltage reg and it looks as though it is fried? Any comments, should I replace it? and what would cause this?
I did find also the black wire going from the V/R up was fried/frayed. Im wondering if there was a spike in voltage to cause a surge ion the ground side.

I would just replace it myself as for the frayed/fried wire it might have rubbed on something and shorted but I could be wrong

If I had an electrical component that looked like that on a vehicle that was going to be miles from my truck in 3 feet of snow, you betcha I would replace it. Heat is not good on electronics and that got hot somehow. Looks like an invite to take a walk in the woods to me
