Franko...I see no one is answering your question.....I do believe its because there is no quick fix that would look good. Harley had an issue with oil "WICKING" between the wire and insulator...when this happened it filled the connector block up with oil. The stator has to be replaced to do it correctly, but if you want a quick fix you can put a small ty-wrap around the wire, pull it VERY tight and this will stop the wicking into the box. Do this to both wires.
What happened in this issue was the oil effected the rubber insulation on the wires in the primary. The rubber expanded due to the oil and oil got between the rubber and the wire.....it worked it's way all the way to the connector.
I do believe your dealer's service dept should have a service bulliten on this issue. I know I saw one and signed it in 2000 when I worked at the dealership.
