Get the metal one
I'm a bit confused as to which stator cover gasket I need for my 2010.
This all started when I discovered a broken bolt inside one of the stator cover holes.
Took off all the other bolts and pulled the stator cover off. Was able to use vise grips to turn the stud and get it out.
The bike had been down on the left hand side and had an aftermarket stator cover. At least I think it is aftermarket because their is no Triumph embossment on it. Maybe there is an OEM version with and without?
In any case the gasket that is on my bike is metal.
Going online I found 2 part numbers for a 2010 based on VIN numbers. One metal and one not metal.
This is where it gets all convoluted for me. Last 6 digits of my VIN is 4061XX.
My understanding is that I would need the non metal version based on my VIN. Unless I am reading the VIN ranges wrong.
What makes things even more confusing is that a UK Triumph site has a part number and the VIN range is more broad Triumph, SPEED TRIPLE (From VIN 210445 to VIN 461331)
Gasket, Metal, Alternator
Part Number: T1260009
"> Eng No 403403"
"> Eng No 406287"
Eng No 356143 > Eng No 403403
Part Number: T1261098
"> Eng No 356142"
Eng No 403404 >
Eng No 406288 >
Maybe both work fine and I'm just stressing myself out over nothing?

It will work fine with either gasket. The metal one is better. Hell I ran several years with just "forma gasket" liquid stuff before fitting a new cover that came with s steel gasket.
In terms of stator cover, there are no afternarket covers. However, pretty much all 1050cc Triumph Triple motors after 09 (and some 08s through to at least 2012) all use the same size and fitting stator covers. Most I've seen are plain, although some are embossed/moulded with "Triumph" on them, but they will all fit. Remembering that motor was used in Sprint 1050 STs, Sprint 1050 GTs, Tiger 1050s, and of course Speed Triples. So the stator covers between models are interchangeable, as are the stators.

Just FYI for anyone who wants to know. The plain stator cover is part number 1260566. The version that has the Triumph logo on it is part number 1260808. The gasket part number is T1261098.
If you compare the two covers in the picture, on the extreme right hand side of each cover, there is an extra projection on the cover on the right. This projection exists on any cover that suits the larger stator and rotor of the late 08 and later models.
According to Bike Bandit the stator and rotor change occurred at VIN number 356142 (last 6 digits of vin number) Edit: the number 356142 is the ENGINE No. not the VIN according to Bike Bandit. I apologise for the mistake.
These two pics show the cover on my 06 model and the cover on my 09 model.

There is evidence of the tip over on the left clutch lever and bar ends as well as scratches on the left radiator guard. It is my theory that the stator cover was replaced and if what you are saying is true, developed a small leak. The bolt was then over tightened to the breaking point in an attempt to stop the leak. Just my theory at this point but who knows.
In any case, I will be using the new embossed stator cover on the right for my 2010. I hope that this fixes the previous oil leak.
BTW, according to this link they have an entirely different part number for the stator cover. T1260003
I took a pic of the insides of both stator covers in my previous link and thought I uploaded it.
I have attached it here and circled the visible differences that I could see.
The plain stator cover which I took off my bike is on the left part number 1260566. The version on the right that has the Triumph logo on it is part number 1260808

Bikebandit shows no ref to #T1260330 which was superseded by T126808 untill 2015.
There is absolutely not one-size-fits-all for Speed Triple 210445 > 461331
Basically, you need a matching set of 3 - the rotor, the stator and the cover.
05-07 1050s is one set, 07-10 1050s are another.
The parts aren't interchangeable between sets, however a whole set will fit on to the 'other' bike.
This is the first set.
For 05-07 1050s (Between VIN: 210445 & 33317 and engine number up to 356142
Rotor: T1300581. Made by Kokusan Japan. Requires puller T3880203
Stator: T1300610. Dimensions: Coil-Coil 104mm, ID 42mm, OD 63mm, Depth 21mm
Engine Cover: T1260566. Has one hump, not two.
For 07-10 (Between VIN 333179 & 461331) and engine number greater than 356142
Rotor: T1300113. Made by Denso Japan. Requires puller T3880365
Stator: T1300111. Dimensions: Coil to Coil 115mm, ID 42mm, OD 63mm, Depth approx 16mm.
Engine Cover: T1260330. Two humps.
Basically, the later engine cover is shallower so the stator that comes with it is shallower, but wider.
Using the earlier, deeper stator with the newer, shallower cover = grinding.
The metal gasket on the right came off my bike.
The paper/fiber gasket on the left is what I will be putting on my bike along with stator cover part number 1260808.
