Rubbish, if the alternator or starter did this it would also cause problems for the rest of the bikes electrics.....my qualifications is an electrician.
If the alternator regulator failed by putting out higher voltage then the whole electrical system will fail for sure.
Your here say of people frying things could be true due to the fact they are not knowledgeable in what they are attempting to do..... hence leave it to some one who is qualified.
