So I'm replacing my stator and r/r for the third time (thank good for the tuxedo mod). I keep buying caltrics which I've gotten about 1200 and 1500 miles from for the last two. I've heard similar numbers from "better" stators. All I've done is relocate the r/r so far. This time around, I'm gonna do the blue wire mod and two wire mod. I'll report back when that fails and possibly get the shindengen r/r (may get that before the next failure).
