My 2009 Ninja 250 has a bad oil leak from the the left side stator wires. The oil drips out of the wires while running or stopped. I pulled off the cover and put on a new gasket and cleaned and sealed up the wire area with black RTV silicone (at least I thought I did). It still leaks the same. Could it be a crank seal on the stator side? I am not sure how much oil is supposed to be in the stator area. Any help would be appreciated.

I tried clear silicone sealant rather than black RTV silicone gasket maker and I am letting it dry a day before I fill it with oil. This time I cleaned off all of the prior silicone off the rubber grommet, and tried to be very thorough in cleaning and applying the silicone. I did realize that the stator/alternator area is supposed to have oil in it.

How did that work out for you I'm having the same problem on my 08

Want to permanently stop the wicking action? Rewire the stator output wires using non-insulated butt connectors soldered on the ends to prevent any capillary action. See reference pic #1 of my (2 wire) stator. I also chose to increase the wire size to 12AWG from the tiny, undersized yellow wire (see pic #2)
12-13 years onward....no issues, wicking or charging (using a Mosfet regulator)
