Light oil drips

Lately I have been noticing my 1098 dropping some oil. Located where the oil drips originated from and it's dripping from rectifier plug. Just leaves me scratching my head. I would clean the plugs and 5-10 days later there is it again. WTF! As you know the other end of the rectifier plug is coming from the motor but no oil residue. WTF! Anyone have this problem with their 1098? WTF!

My 1098 has the same problem and I think the oil is coming out of the alternator cover through the voltage reg harness. I can see the oil inside the copper strands of wire where it flows throgh the connectors, but have not yet taken any steps to fix it.

That is very freaking interesting..... Temp fix was to reroute the wiring up and not down. Anyways, thanks for answering since I was starting to feel crazy for a sec. I'm assuming it's just you and me with this problem?
