Check eBay or google it. Most stator covers run for about $75-120 bucks, depending on brand and what it's for. I've seen them on eBay for as low as $40 for a new one. They're simple to change, like around 8 botls to remove to get it off.

I figured he's talking about the stator cover even though he put stator, beings the stator cover is a common thing to replace. I guess we'll have to waint for him to reply.

Stator is part of the alternator, it is the part with the windings that does not rotate (Stator: ie. static, not moving). When you have alternator problems, they usually manifest themselves two ways: defective or burnt out diodes, or burnt or shorted stator windings.

Alternator...puts out ac (alternating current) converted to DC (12v direct current) by the diodes. Most modern bikes use alternators. Requires a functioning battery to work. (excited field alternator)

Magneto...puts out Dc (direct current) ...does not require a battery to begin generating power. Used on older bikes, dirt bikes and competition machines, those that do not require lighting.
