I don't own an F800 but had a Honda CBF1000, which are known to fry stators on a regular basis, mine fried at 22,000kms. I always run Amsoil full synthetic and that's what was in the bike from it's first service so I don't think synth is going to save the stator. My solution on the CBF was to install a CompuFire R/R along with the new stator and that setup ran to 38,000kms when I traded in the bike so not sure if that second stator is still running or not.
