Don't buy the OEM R/R. It's more expensive and not very well made.
Rick's has the stator for 140, but you need the R/R which they sell for 105.
Bike Bandit was also mentioned. They sell Electrosport's R/R which is the one I went with for my R/R replacement. I got mine for 79 plus shipping.
RMStator has one for 99.
The R/R is easy to replace but I would suggest that since you are going to replace it anyway, you might as well do the relocate at the same time.
The usual place for the R/R is under the battery box. As such it is also above the goatsbelly which is a massive heat producer. Between acid spills from wet cell batteries, and the heat from the exhaust, the R/R there doesn't stand much of a chance. Most of us have move our R/Rs to the left side of the bike. I have mine mounted on a piece of scrap metal tied to the frame. Others make theirs mount to the passenger foot rest assembly. Either way, it gets the R/R out into the open air where it can dissipate heat much better.
