Hi,
I'm new to these Boxer engines (been all Japanese in line 4's up until now) and when changing a plug the other day I noticed oil in the ignition coil chamber. Any chance it's normal for these engines to discharge a small bit of oil here, or am I in trouble? It's an '06 R1200GS. Thanks.

If you mean in the tunnel around the coil stick, that is not normal but not worring. There is a seal at the bottom (between the valve cover and the cylinder head, it was probably misplaced while adjusting the valves.
