There was a thread here a while back asking folks how many stators they had installed or the number of miles on their original stator. Should be able to find it with a search. IIRC, EdAlbris had over 75,000 on his original. But he's in UK where the temps are cooler. Many folks think heat has a lot to do with stator longevity.

Member in Phoenix replaced his stator twice, the last two about a year apart. He rigged up an oil line to spray onto and cool the stator and hasn't reported a problem since.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
