Welcome to the forum, David.
I think Vmsguy has you covered. Please come back and let us know how things went with the re-install and how the new stator works.

PS....what's a reasonable timeframe to pull and replace a stator? I'm mechanically strong (mechanical designer/now IS geek), have the tools, and the desire. :)
Were it me, I'd take a couple of days to clean up the frame and motor before putting it back in, and check all the little bits that are easier to get at with the motor out. But that's me. In a hurry, 6~8 hours is possible. Maybe less. Do you have the book? There is a definite sequence for putting the bolts back in and I found it makes a big difference. Also there is an adjustment Honda recommends to keep the motor quiet.

Oh, and solder the wires. Yes the plug destroys stators. If yours was burned, I suggest you also check the rectifier plug. They can do the same.
