Hey guys - Just washed the bike down and noticed on the left hand front of the engine - there is a black plastic "cord" that goes into the engine - it is wrapped in electrical tape and has grey silicon on the plug into the case.

The silicon on mine is lifting off. What is this cord for and using high temp silicon good enough to fix it back on?

Thanks

Lance

Sorry lance I can't help with fixing it but the cause may be high pressure water when washing. Do you use a pressure washer? Down here the mains pressure is amoast the same as a pressure washer whats it like where you live?

Sounds like the wires from the stator/alternator.

When the bike is put together at the factory, they'll put a dab of sealant where a thick rubber grommet holding the wires passes through the engine crankcase.
If it's not leaking any oil, it may just be excess sealant.

Same thing can happen where the sealant seals the joint where the crankcases, themselves, come together down the middle of the engine.
Sometime, there will be some that oozed out during assembly and is just hanging there doing nothing.

How about a pic?

Mine was sort of coming out during the first week that I got the bike.... a thick layer of high-temp silicone fixed the problem

No oil, No problem
The sealant on the outside is not what is doing the sealing anyway
