It's a "stator" and it's similar to an alternator - except that it's mounted directly to the engine, running off of the crank. I've seen used parts for $150 and the labor (especially on an 800 v-twin) is probably pretty involved...

They are usually behind the flywheel on the engine. There are magnets on the inside edge of the flywheel which when passed across the coils on the stator, create and electrical charge thus powering and charging the battery.

Most small engines have them and aparently some of the bigger small engines.

The stator shouldn't be a big deal unless it's buried under a load of stuff. On a motorcycle it takes about an hours and a flywheel puller to change one out.

Yep, basically picture if the guts of your alternator were directly mounted on the crank inside the engine. Similar to a magneto on a lawnmower, that sort of thing.

Its the labor thats the killer.
