The stator is bad?
You may want to look into a Poor Boy Alternator conversion as it doesn't require removing the engine.
Its all external and hidden inside the fairing.
Some members here have done the conversion and could offer you more info.

i agree with trike trust me I was going to have a stator replaced was quoted over $1300 of course that cost is where I live could be more where u are and them having my bike over two weeks. I bought and installed a poor boy kit for $555 that was with shipping.
if you have some general mechanical skills. you can do it. good luck hope that helps

it to late tonight to post a pic but trust me you would never even know I have one and it is quiet too. and $700 it not a bad price. the reason I did mine was price and from lots and lots of reading on the web the stators seem not to last long, the mechanic told me the samething and said the older wings it was a bad design having them in the rear of the bike and having to remove the whole engine to replace. so i figured a alternator is a heck of alot easier to replace two bolts and two wires. i know some said they had to heat up for the lower fairing to mold around alternator but i did not have to anything to mine. but have to remove a heat shield. just did a 200mi round trip, worked flawlessly. and like I said don piggott sent me all the parts and also cut the alternator brackets to work with my bike. he is also very helpful. you pay him thru paypal and within 3 days I had mine. hope this helps
