I keep the oil level up, and the bike typically is in the 4-4500 rpm range. It does have led headlights, so the electrical load is probably less than stock. I went with the Ricks Motorsport this time. The Suzuki one didn't last very long, and it is $200 more than the Ricks piece now. I did have the original r/r fail last year. lt was replaced under recall, so maybe that helped shorten the life of the stator.
