While my stator went out JUST before my warranty went out (15,5xx miles)...!
I elected to do my own work, despite the atrocious, ridiculously priced Buell stator cost. My R1 stator went out at about 45,000 miles and cost half as much..!
Anyway...I sent my original Buell stator to the guys at "Custom Rewind".
Because of the excessive heat generated, I asked them to lower the wattage a little if they could without lowering the 14 volt output at lower rpm.
That was up to them how or IF they wanted to do this.
A wire diameter change or wrap count change will effect the output and "maybe" the heat output.
They also have a coupla different epoxies they use. The owner said that they use a "green stuff" they use for the high powered (high heat output) stators. They've found it to work well on other engines that have stator problems.
Anyway, I got it back in the mail yesterday.
Visually...a strange green color, kinda thick epoxy coating...but nicely done.
What I could see of the new windings, they were clean and straight, they used my original harness. The epoxy coating was laid very cleanly so there is no overcoating that will get in the way of anything...i.d. or o.d.
I'm currently on my second Buell stator, and hopefully it'll last a while, but I have the Custom Rewind stator ready to go if and when needed.
So far (visually) a thumbs up to Custom Rewind.

I think he used the original and paid for the new stator from HD

I was looking too but only found some info on other forums that are saying how good they are.
The phone number listed is (800) 798-7282
and Yellow pages says:
2014 Pratt Hwy
Birmingham, AL 35214-1932
Contact: Gary Frye - Male
So I'd guess they have no web presence.

They "had" a web site.
But had to give it up because of the name.
Apparently, some other company with the same name got into the web thing and somehow got the sole rights to the name.
The Custom Rewind guys we are interested in are trying to get a site back up and running.
This was as of about a month or so ago.
P.s. - The info noted above is correct.
