interesting...in all 3 of my Triumphs, its been the stators. At between 65k and 85k miles each. I now have 120k on my tigers ricks. No issues.
Yes me too, stator went twice on my 2010 tiger, 18 months apart,  1st time i was advised by a bike mechanic that it was probably the R/R so changed that, made no difference so i pulled the stator cover to find 2 burnt out lobes at the top due to lack of cooling oil  :151:

Iím another in the Ďfailed statorí group.  From my experience I would also add to check carefully the connector block between the stator and the R/R - the output from the stator doesnít go direct to the R/R, but via a connector block.  Itís prone to corrosion and produces the same effect as a failed phase (or two) on the stator itself.  Fortunately the cable from the stator is plenty long enough to just chop out both sides and replace it.

Worth giving that connector block a bit of TLC, location? colour?

This is the connector block, see photos of what happened to mine last year  :005:

Iíd say so.  Pull off the side cover above the stator, and follow the lead from the top of the stator along.   That cable is long (probably a foot longer than it needs to be) so itís cable-tied in a loop in the space behind the engine.  There is a ~6 inch fly lead from the R/R, which meets the cable from the stator at a three-way translucent plastic connector.

If itís corroded, just replace it.  There is plenty of spare cable, and no need to worry about which cable goes where - any lead can go in any of the three connectors.

Ok, thanks to both. Is it a tank/airbox off to get at the connector?

No, just that left hand plastic side panel above and behind the stator cover.   The lead is held up with a cable tie but once youíve snipped that loose itís easy to work on just sitting beside the bike.

With the mk 1 tiger its tank off and lift the airbox as the cable runs under the airbox and was cable tied, so a bit of a pig the 1st time i replaced the stator.  :151:
Thats what my bike was like but other mk 1's may be routed slightly different.

There was grease oozin out of the connector so left it be.

PITA getting that plastic cover off & on with the power socket fitted there + the engine bars, a right wriggle job.
