First of all, I would not make modifications unless you clearly understand what it will do. Simply making a modification because someone else did it doesn't tend to work very well. In 108,000 miles, I removed the clutch and sidestand nanny switches, removed one of the throttle cables (the "push" cable), removed one of the front brakes, removed the complete CA evap system, the PAIR system, put in a maintenance free battery, and replaced the oem ACCTs with TOC MCCTs. All of this was done for a reason, and I understood what I was doing. The one repair was a stator replacement With a TPE rewound stator. It was still working fine when the engine had a major mechanical failure at 108,000 miles. The original R/R, junction box, and starter relay are still good. The stator had over 80,000 miles on it when it failed, which is not bad for a motorcycle stator. It's only a big deal because of how difficult it is to replace. When you deviate from stock, you need to understand what you are doing, because you are then on your own when things go wrong.
