Now I have a new stator and mosfet type Reg/rec. Although I am pretty sure my fix to the stator would last as long as the bike will, I want to switch it out. I don't want this to be what stops my bike in the middle of the outback
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...
