Engine Blow up?

How many people here have had problems with their '04 generators?
I am sure this has been discussed before.
Please entertain this nooby?

I have personaly rebuilt 2 04s that have come through my shop that the genrator has came apart. They seam to eat the shafts up and get to slaping the case and send metal through the motor. The only change to the later bikes were the spacers and thrust washers.

Metal through the engine... sounds like fun.

If the motor grenades, I'll find a way to stick an '08 motor in my '04.

I have a little over 7,000 miles on my 04 and no issues so far.
