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.

Trying to find out why my stator is burning out this is my second stator I put on 2003 r1

Hi, Rudy and the usual suspects are:
1. Excessive electrical "HEAT" aka "AMPERAGE" melts the varnish
insulation causing the coils to short out.
2. Overheating due to a faulty voltage regulator.
3. Voltage regulator not properly grounded.
4. Loose rotor magnets or stator bolts.
5. Faulty starter relay.
6. Old battery dead cell loose or corroded cables.
7. Faulty wiring in the charging circuit.
8. Excessive wattage in a batteryless system.
9. Aftermarket parts are usually substandard.
10. Headlight not designed for a motorcycle system.
Some bikes have charging systems that get the job done but just barely and will have the most failures, you can upgrade the system with quality parts and a higher output. Relocating the voltage regulator to a spot more conducive to air flow will help immensely. Regular wiring system checks for corrosion chaffed wires, rerouting harnesses that run too close to heat sources ie. cylinders-exhaust etc. is great preventive maintenance to avoid those breakdowns in the middle of nowhere at 2 in the morning.

Kawasaki vulcan 1600 not charging after riding in rain

get a volt meter and check the three yellow wires coming out of stator / generator. All should read over 12.6volts, all should have same voltage. if not, chevk plug connections for burning or, if they are good, pull out stator for testing.
If stator is good, replace voltage regulator unit, usually under seat near battery.

I have a1987 f-150 acts like its vapor locked changed fuel filter,plugs,wires,distributer cap,ran fine sat for 8 months now wont run right

Sounds like the distributor stator/pickup is defective, this sends an erratic signal to the Ignition control module (called the TFI module) coil and that causes the timing to go wacko. The Ignition control module and the stator are mounted on and inside the distributor change them both, the distributor must come out to replace the stator. here was a recall on may of these trucks, contact a Ford dealer. Another problem is that the ignition switch comes apart, this also was recalled on many models. Below is a diagram of the distributor for your reference.11_30_2011_5_37_47_pm.jpg

Husaberg (FE 501-03)Stator problem

I have never heard of a stator preventing a motorcycle from starting. You need a professional, local, second opinion before you plunk down any bucks.

Unless that is, are you calling a magneto a stator? Does your motorcycle have a battery? If it has a battery, you probably do not have a magneto.
