Be sure to use loctite on the stator bolts and torque them properly. Stator bolts coming loose is not unheard of.
I think Rick's stators are a bit less money than OEM, but both will serve you well.
The real bike killers are the Chinese Regulator/Rectifiers. Some fail in the over voltage mode and if you ignore the boiling battery, it fries the ECM and sometimes the cluster.
They were $39.95 on Ebay including the stator, R/R and gasket. Total crap.
Chinese knock off brake levers crashed a bunch of people before that and currently the crap Chinese stator covers are causing starter gear lock ups.
