Battery problem from Wales

I've got a 2004 Magnum and in a rush and in the semi dark I connected the battery the wrong way round. When I tried to start the machine there was a wushing noise and smoke came up from the front of the machine by the handle bars. Any ideas as to what I've damaged and need to replace?

As far as I can see the 2004 magnum does not have a rectifier. Looking at some other posts there seems to be a suggestion that this function is in some other part. Do you have any ideas?
Voltage rectifier 2004 magnum 330

Thanks for all the help everyone but does anyone know if the 2004 magnum 330 has a separate voltage rectifier or if this function is incorporated in another 'black box'. There are a couple attached to the machine in front and beneath the bars. One looks like the cdi and the other, directly beneath, is solid and finned.
