Then, just to compare, I checked my 2009 F800GS, and got 13.4 on one leg and 9.6 volts on the other two . My stator was replaced under warranty exactly ONE year (and 8K miles) ago

So now I have two new stators coming from Rick's Motorsport Electrics.
My understanding is that any BMW part has a two year warranty on it from time of installation,
that being the case you might want to re-assemble with the bad factory stator and have BMW give you the new upgraded kit with ventilated flywheel at no charge....
