2002 stator upgrade?

I'm searching used V strom 1000's and found a low mileage 2002. I under stand that in 03 Suzuki up graded the stators to 400 watts. Can you replace the 02 ststot with a newer oem stator to upgrade it to the 400 watts??

Thanks,
Mike

The rotor changed too.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

The data is murky at best, but it may be that the 2002-03 Vees don't melt their stators or suffer from wandering rotor magnets quite as often as the later models.

But honestly, what difference would an occasional theoretical 50 watts make in your life?

One worthwhile upgrade would be the regulator/rectifier. A MOSFET or series R/R will give you much steadier voltage levels at lower RPM than the stock unit and wastes less energy.

2002 - 350W
2003 and later - 400W

MOSFET R/Rs due keep voltages steadier in my experience but they don't provide any more power or waste less energy AFAIK.
