Question about 2001 Suzuki Goose 350
Is this a one-time failure? It may be a bad unit.
If your generator/alternator keeps burning out the stator coils, it seems that they are being overloaded. Since it occurs over an 8-month period, the load isn't like a short in the wiring, which would cause a fuse to blow. This sounds like a constant heavier than normal load since it takes 8 months to fail.
The first thing I would suspect would be the battery. If it had a shorted cell, it would draw more current trying to charge. If this was the case, you'd notice slow cranking, etc.
(It's also the easiest to eliminate as a problem)
Next thing I'd look at would be the voltage regulator.
Something is demanding more power than it should to make the alternator to fail so soon.
