this bike is basicly my car, i ride it every day and only have motorcycle parking at work. i got a dl650 for reliability not because i like it the best. i am a mechanic and i know anything can fail at any time, but burning up a stator in 1 year is a bit early. and the really bad part, not a single stator in the country and no idea when i can get 1 from japan. im much more concerned about down time than the money.

Bike Bandit shows they have a stator for a 2012 in stock on their website. That's where I got mine a year or so ago. Took less than a week to ship it to me.

I was looking at the oem 2012. Bike Bandit has their same part # for 2011 and 2012, but if you look up the Suzuki Part #'s you get 32101-17ZG10 for 2011 and 32101-17G11 for 2012. Next question is does anyone know if the stator is the same for the Wee and the Glee? A 1 digit difference in the part number might not necessarily mean the part is any different from the prior model.
