In my experience, about half of rotax twin stators are going by 50K miles. Germany is well aware of the problem, but there is no simple fix. The factory unit is a good one, my personal opinion, this is a lubrication problem. The stator is not getting the oil bath it needs to run within temperature tolerances.

Theres nothing I am aware of that an operator can do will reduce the chances of this happening.

A heavier rewind or exotic insulation would help, but finding someone qualified to do that will be a trick and a half.

Sorry I don't have better answers.
