It's kinda like putting overflow tubes on Connie carbbies or upgrading the dohickey on a KLR. Relatively minor operations/improvements to stave off a major issue. Although a burned stator isn't quite the results that you would get if you are unlucky enough to suffer the affects that can happen by not doing the dohickey or overflow tubes. In those instances you may very well grenade the engine.
It doesn't happen to everybody but it happens often enough for a prudent person to consider it. The 650 does have up to six years of warranty so you could just not worry about it. I do extended traveling with mine so I really don't want to have to deal with an avoidable issue that could tie up the bike for over a week minimum, probably more.
Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SteveinSunnyFlorida)
