You may already be aware of this but for those who aren't, a lot, but not all, of the SEM ignition (2003 and older I believe) bikes had problems with the stators failing prematurely.
There's a gentleman in Spain on who goes by Sparks.
You send him your bad stator, he rewinds it better than new and sends it back. That should be the end of your stator problems.
