When my r/r went bad, it did not exhibit any of the classic signs i.e low fuel light and gauge cluster not funtioning properly. It would intermittently cut out at around 8k rpm.
When the stator went bad, it felt like there was a misfire/dead spot between 4.5k and 6k rpm. Then the turn signals started to flash 3 time as fast, and finially resulted in stalling. This was over a period of a week. It started with the misfire/dead spot, then a couple of days later the turn signals would blink like crazy, and finially after a few more days the bike would stall when coming to a stop.
My bike had two stators put in it and they both were the exact same symptoms both times.
As for the r/r I only had one replaced (shunt type), and it was upgraded to a mosfet.
