i just did the silicon seal o the coil side cover.its seems to be a common leak problem.
see that there is an oil spray to the coil.
is the oil spray there to cool the coil?as i heard that the swing has a burnt out coil problem on my local forum.

This is the first I have heard of a coil problem on a Silverwing. I haven't had any oil leaks on my Silverwing in over 47,000 miles.

Chris. are you referring to the ignition coil, located under the right side floor skirt, or the alternator/stator, located in the right side crankcase cover where the oil fill is located?

If the stator coils then, yes, the stator is cooled by oil spray. That's why one or more of those stator coils will "burn out" if you run it too long when too low on oil.

If the ignition coil then, no it's not supposed to have any oil mist associated with it and there is another problem causing that.

i am refering to the stator cover,was thinking wat the o ring is there for when i first open the cover to reseal as it was leaking lightly.
so the oil spray will play a part of keeping the stator coil cool.?!

It gets pretty hot here in Florida also. Now I know you mean the stator, yes I had to replace my stator. My crankcase cover did not have an O-ring. I did what the service manual said and used a very thin layer of silicone sealant. It is not uncommon for the stator to go bad. But I would not call it a common problem to have the crankcase cover leak. After seeing how thin the silicone sealant is I am surprised it not a common problem though. As for the oil spray being used for cooling the stator, maybe it is but a lot of bikes do not have the stator running in oil.
