My problem like many others is the not knowing when and where the Stator may fail. I have a much anticipated 2,000 mi ride in may. Seven days / nights of riding etc. I have an 07 with 20,000 miles on the od. I really enjoy this bike. It is just right wgt. etc. for me. I am contemplating changing the Stator for the peace of mind before my trip, sounds foolish I guess. So does being 2,000 mi. away from home and no help in sight. I don't need help making up my mind. I am wondering what replacement Stators have given some of you the best service?
