Stator connector oil leak revisited

After sixteen years my 12R is finally experiencing the dreaded stator connector oil leak. Iíve read through all of the stikies and was just wondering if there had been any new developments since itís been a few years since anything has been added. Am I correct in assuming that if I cut out the connector and solder the wires that I wonít have to make any repairs at the stator cover? It appears that I havenít add any burning or melting of the wires or connector. Thanks for any wisdom you can share.

Personally I would still check the stator for any signs of burn, or deterioration. Also you could still do an output check of the stator and reg/rec. Sometimes it sneaks up on you with the gradual failure. 16 years is good till any signs of problems! I know some have never had the issues I have had, and even after getting the stator re-wound and Japanese Mosfet reg/rec I still had an issue with stator burnt out after 2 years (the autoelectrician covered the repair cost). I intend to do a stator check on a regular basis regardless of how well - or not - the bike is running.

Just repairing the connectors may work out well for you.

Hope you don't find any other problem with yours!
