Replacing stator again, 2nd one in 4 months. WTF??

I see where multiple replacements are fairly common, but does anyone know why they go out? And isn't it unusual for one to go out after only 4 months?

some stators on the market are of inferior quality. so I wouldn't be surprised if they fail that quick

What brand is the stator? The cheaper the crappier.

Tim Perrott Enterprises is widely praised on many forums for top quality stators and other electrical parts. He is hard to contact sometimes though, if this link is accurate:

If you do not want the sometimes experienced delays dealing with TPE, try Rick's or whatever mc parts supplier you use for other stuff.

IIRC a faulty regulator/rectifier is often the cause of stators going bad.

Hey guys, my bike is in pieces awaiting my stator from Tim Parrot but it is taking a long time. I'm from Canada and maybe the stator is stuck at the border? I can only imagine the face of the agent if they X-Ray a stator...a bunch of wire...who knows, they might think it's something else.
I've paid thru Paypal 45 days ago and still waiting. Tim doesn't reply to his e-mail anymore? All I heard was good thing from his stator but hopefully I will get it soon, I'm in no rush as it is winter here but it would be nice to start putting everything together and start her up. It's curently in pieces and I will make the ear shave mod as well, no choice now as everything was cut off when I remove the engine. I'm also planning to mod the rear end with a rear fender from a Vulcan 900 Custom. I will post pics when finish.

Hopefully I will get my stator soon or at least a e-mail from Tim. I'm not even sure if the part was sent?

I have a question for you guys. If I change the stator, do I have to change the R/R? I was thinking of relocation but I will get slip on exhaust so the goats belly will be gone anyway.

This site is amazing by the way and I will be back often when I start putting everything back together.

Later

His stators are pricy but worth it. You'd pay about as much for his rewinds as a no-name stator on fleaBay or any website, and having handled his work up close it's much better. Wound right, better insulated, ends sanded. Seems to be done right, probably better than factory.

Mine took ~3 weeks. Add a week for customs? Sometimes less. You still should have had it by now. I don't know if he lists a phone number but he was good about emailing me back. Spam spiders love BBs so I'll say his address is pretty simple, tim @ his-website dot com.
