ZX12R leaking oil from the alternator connection and ending on the rear tire - December 1, 2006, 10:15 AM

I own a 2002 ZX12R NINJA. On those bikes there was a recall because oil was climbing from the stator through the wires and going in to the alternator plug. A couple of weeks ago i had the bike taken for the recall to get it fixed at the kawasaki dealership mechanic and so he did. Today i have seen the oil driping on my chain guard. I checked the plug and i have seen that my plug was full of oil and one of the connectors was overheating and started to damage the plug. Did anyone had a similar problem and what hapened? i gave a call to the kawasaki mechanic and he said that he is going to ask the dealer for further instruction. In order to change the plug you have to buy the stator with the wiring and if you dont fix it you may burn the alternator and the ecu. Did anybody had a similar problem and how the kawasaki dealer took care of it? My bike didnt show it until i have reached almost 23000 km on the clock. Please let me know.

Sounds like the recall was not done correctly. Take it back and have them fix it proper.

Damage caused by their recall. They should pay for it.

Go to zx-12r.org or bikeland.org, plenty of 12 guys there who know whats up.

Hope you get it fixed up....dealers have screwed over several 12 guys on this but the fix is relatively cheap. I checked mine, I have 10k on my 2000 12, mine was fine. Be careful, some guy had that sheet leak all over his rear tire...guess what happened when he flicked it into a corner?

I realise what happened. But i dont want to go aftermarket on that. I hope that they will fix the problem. Going aftermarket if something else happens they wont take any responsibility. For the specific situation though because its a reacall and because it has been fixed whith the specified instructions of kawasaki, this is what hapened it didnt get fixed and the problem is worse than before, now the plug started to get damaged.
