Internet search turns up a few rewinders, this is the first one... Baja Designs

They don't list the vn750 on their page but I'll bet they'll do one.

I have checked around my area to see if any of the starter/electric motor rewind places can rewind a stator. I looked at the website for Baja Designs and none of the pictures are close to the Vulcan stator as far as the number of poles so I bet it will be expensive. Hopefully someone will get back to me with an answer this week for a cost estimate.

I’m asking a question here simply because I do not know, is there really any value in rewinding a stator vs buying a better quality one?

Rewind can give you a boost on stator output, and quality of aftermarket stators is spotty. No doubt that some aftermarket stators survive, but the consumer is quality control.

The price is about the same IIRC since I looked into it recently. I have tried both caltric and Rick's. I couldn't recommend the Rick's more highly. I was getting between 300-1500 out of caltrics but the Rick's I installed two months ago has over 4k miles already without a single hiccup. A caltric might be worth having as a backup on a long road trip just to get you back on the road so you wouldn't need a long tow/wait for parts.

Definitely do the blue/two wire mods and check electrical connections. I can't say for sure the mods will fix all bikes but I can say for sure they fixed mine. I was hesitant about Rick's because I read on here they're not great but I'm a believer from personal experience. I'm as cheap as they come for non safety items like brakes and tires but would buy another Rick's despite being 3-4x more expensive than the caltric
