I would bet money that BMW hasn't changed anything, even on the 2012 models. I did hear that they are planning to at least make the stator available by itself, and not only packaged with the flywheel which triples the price and is unnecessary in most cases.

Pretty much all of them on bikes with 50k+, often on bikes with around 30k, occasionally with significantly less.

It's definitely a wear part in this engine, and one of the first things to go.
