Thinking about derating - in your case the stator, even at 95% of original capacity, is probably capable of more output than the regulator can handle. It's just some copper wire, not fussy semiconductors. Prudent to change out the stator now that one is available. Though your old stator is lighter now...
I like 'em Italian, dirty, and 18 years old.
