    I'd go pick it up and then look for a stator online. I wouldn't be so sure of their work and I sure wouldn't want to buy a $300 stator to find out if they were right. I'd buy an inexpensive stator from an online source. You could get the pulser coil to rule that out as well.

    Update: I called Roseville Yamaha yesterday (Weds) morning and told them I was going to be there at around 3:30 yesterday afternoon to pick up my bike. I asked them to take off the spark plug cap and ignition coil they had installed b/c I already have a new one and didn't want to pay for theres. When I got to Roseville, the service guy was pretty adamant about me keeping it there since the new OEM stator had magically shipped from Japan the day before and should be here in a matter of days. I said I had already ordered stators off ebay since they told me they cancelled my order and just wanted to get my bike.
    Well of course my bike wasn't ready!! They said the carb was taken apart and it would be a few days until they get to it!! I said 'well that's why I called this morning to give you guys a heads up'. So I left there pretty PO'ed b/c I feel like they are holding my bike ransom. Like the stator is going to show up and they'll install it and I'll have to pay for it. I am not happy about this whole situation. I feel like I'm getting the run around or something.
    We called Roseville yesterday evening and reiterated that we would be there this Friday to pick up the bike. So we'll see what happens.

    on another note, they said they tested the pulser coil and that it is good. So hopefully that's true.

    I think you need a face to face sit down with the service manager at the dealers to work out what’s the best thing for both of you going forward.

    Once you’ve explained your position, you’ll have them on the back foot, with every chance of a compromise

    Sounds like the mechanic involved in this is snowed under with work, so you deal with the service manager, and the service manager can deal with the mechanic

    Just don’t go in there “all guns blazing” – just patiently explain that you were acting on the information they supplied, and that you’re seeking to get this solved – not escalated

    This puts the onus on the dealer – not on you

    If it was me in that situation, (and maybe I’m crazy), I’d give them the ebay stator to fit and try it out – if it works, then they can return the part they ordered as it will still be squeaky clean. If that (ebay stator) doesn’t work, then they can try the one they got from Japan – if that doesn’t work either, you can call them idiots, and they can stick the stator they got on a shelf somewhere (having re-installed either your original or your ebay one)

    It’s not an ideal situation – but it’s one you need to take control of with a degree of “calmness” – getting “agitated” at this point (as tempting as it is) will solve nothing

    Meanwhile – you have a PM ………

    they arent happy about having ordered the part from japan because they have to pay a restocking fee to return it. We're supposed to pick up the bike tomorrow afternoon to take it to Jims for him to fix but I'm just at a loss. I just want my bike fixed right and i dont want to worry about it anymore. I dont want any BS or games or run around or a $1000 bill

    called roseville and made nice with one of the service guys. he said to go through him only so we can be on the same page about stuff. he said bring the ebay parts down when they come in and they'll install them and make sure the bike is running good when it leaves.

    Ok, sounds like a start in the right direction...

    A sad saga but for Laura I think a good move.
