IMO, poor design exacebated by heat. One member from a very hot environment (Arizona?) had several stators fail, rigged up an oil line to spray onto the stator and has had no further problems. As designed, there isn't enough oil bathing the stator to keep it cool.
That, and when the stator fails it requires an engine pull or modification to replace it.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
