Hope for mine expiring within the 7 years then, best join 'relay'.  From what I read you don't pussy around in the rev stakes either.  I know it is natural for peeps who suffer this issue to be more likely to vote but so far the 1 in 20 bikes failure rate is looking realistic.

I try not to hang about. I very much enjoy riding "progressively". But I suspect the downside of that is that I'm pretty hard on my machines because they don't spend a long time in the lower rev ranges warming up before progressing into the upper half of the range.
Take my advice or not, I really don't care. I'm just telling you what I think and would do on my bike.

'59 plate GT 10600 miles and still going strong on the original one, despite being dropped by my late father when he slipped on gravel.
Currently pilots a 2009 CBF1000GT, with Beowulf cans and fender extender.

Jan 09 on a 58 plate 10,700 miles. Still on original stator. Always optimistic, so I'm not expecting any problems.  :084:  :164:

2006 Biffa with just over 18,000 miles.  Still going strong on original stator. Fingers crossed though.

13000, miles approx on a 2008 Mk1. Don't use it for commuting so my riding is manly in the open country with the occasional trip into London. Will start to worry a bit when I've over 20,000 on the clock as I intend to keep the bike a long time and maybe buy a spare stator for continental trips.
(I commuted across London for about 5 years some time ago using a Kawasaki ER5. Most folk on the ER5 forum had there regulator/rectifier fail between 10,000 and 30,000 miles, fortunately that was a easy and fairly cheap DIY repair mine went at about 20,000 miles and Kawasaki never offered any help to my knowledge. Honda aren't the only company with charging issues)
