Either of those are fine.

Those must ground through the case? Very clean. I like it.

Sonreir do you know of any R/R units that regulate to a higher voltage? (Like 30v, for instance?)

I had toyed with the idea of using a high-powered LED package as a headlamp but they always have forward voltage requirements well over 12v. To avoid adding a DC to DC converter, I thought about regulating up to 30v for the headlamp and using another regulator to run my 12v components.

I think the DC/DC converter would be a better option, especially since LEDs are generally low current devices.
Google "30V LED Driver" and find something that can handle the current level you need.

That assumes you're using points, however.  Gets trickier with some of the electronic ignition systems.

This is a USCRA F160 racer so I have to keep the points. If I decide to move to 200 GP I believe I can abandon points. Would there be a lot of re-engineering to upgrade to an electronic set-up?

Depends on the setup.  Most aftermarket units are pretty straightforward, but the stock units can be a bit more complicated.

Thanks for these fellas...great info here.  I'm want to wire up my GS650 from scratch.  Any major changes for the 4-cylinder from something really simple, like Sonrier's first example?

In the first example I don't include much wiring for the ignition system and that would be a concern (especially if your ignition is electronic).  Also take a look at the alternator and charging system as those will almost definitely be different.
