You need to either pony up the $ for a stock stator, which is the best available commercially made option ($322.05 + shipping at cheapcyclyparts.com), or get a better than original rebuilt stator from Tim Perrot Interprises for a fraction of that. The other stators out there are primarily Chinese made junk, and you are wasting your time buying one. A member here went that route and had to replace it within 200 miles! If you are impatient, find a used stator, send it to Tim, ride close to home and charge your battery after every ride. When your rebuilt stator comes in, Tim will buy your old one if it is rebuildable.
You get to ride (close to home) and wind up with a better-than-original stator for cheap.
While I was in there, I would replace the balance dampers. If yours is one of the early models with the shifter rod that is prone to fail, that should also be replaced.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
