As trippage said, it may be more prudent to make cartain your stator is up to snuff. Usually when R/R's fail they bite the dust based on other factors like poor wiring, bad connections, bad stator output, weak batteries, lack of or too much electrical load, heat.
Has your bike ever been down? espically on the stator side? Ive had bikes that got a few scratches on the stator cover that deformed the rotor enough to cause slight contact between it and the stator that would kill a stator or R/R fairly quickly.
On previous bikes i added a small, permanantly mounted power inverter. one of those cigarette ligther ones. Its come in handy multiple times for charging stuff while on the road. If you do, make sure you add it to a switched power relayed source, so it wont kill your battery when sitting up.
