I have been following this and the stator threads and I'm try to understand something.

What actually fails in/with the stator?

I have seen the pictures of the blackened stator... so is it an insulation failure that leads to wire conductor failure?

Would using a high heat epoxy as the insulator work in preventing the burning (failure) of the stator?

My GS still has 2.5 years of warranty left, but I'm hoping that either a recall or a good/reliable aftermarket workaround happens.


Thanks to all of you that are testing for the rest of us
