Bike wouldn't start - no spark diagnosis

--Wanted to post this because it's apparently a common problem with my bike - 2006 V-Star 650. Had to have the bike towed (thanks AMA) and the diagnosis ended up being the pickup coil. Over $575 out the door (the stator assembly alone was almost $300) and the dealer sat on the bike for 2 weeks.

--Apparently the new stator only comes with a 1-year warranty, which is kind of bogus since the original died with less than 24,000 miles on the bike!
