Here's my super technical drawing of how I (hopefully) corrected this problem with oil wicking through the stator wires. I did a bunch of research and the oil wicking problem seemed to be very common on Aprilias which is how I got the idea for this solution. In order to route the wires I had to cut the connector off where the stator connects to the voltage regulator in order to pull the wiring out, so I went ahead and cleaned the wires with brake cleaner and poured some green threadlocker into the wires to help seal any gaps.

Blue is the standard routing path, red is my updated routing path. The Aprilia guys swear that oil won't wick upwards, but we'll see :p

Update, still no oil leak since I rerouted the wires. I haven't ridden much due to weather and COVID, but no drips!
