With the way the wires are routed anyways, wouldn't it be a good idea to wrap the wires in a heat shield or one of those plastic ribbed anti-chaff tubes?
The wires are inside another rubber or plastic sleeve, but the ribbed loom might offer some chaffing protection. IMO, I don`t think the loom offers much protection from the extreme heat of the exhaust system if the wiring harness is actually laying right on it.
If an actual metal loom or heat shield is available, it might be effective.
I have a question for the electrical gurus here that I should know the answer to, but don`t.
Are the clear plastic sleeves around the bullet connectors on the stator wires shrink wrap, sealing and holding the two pieces together.
I tried to separate the connectors on one wire a couple of years ago, and ended up trying to cut through just the clear plastic sleeve so I could do an AC voltage test on the stator. I quit before I succeded in separating the connectors, because I was afraid I was going to break something.
So now it sits with the clear plastic sleeve partially cut lengthwise, but the connector still firmly connected. I am not experienced in soldering wires, (or anything else for that matter), so remain leery of breaking any wires in the harness. I did buy some solder today, and I do have a soldering iron, so with some practice I may be able learn how to make a good splice, and not be afraid to work on the stator wire.
Dang bikes are just like women it seems. Both make you do a lot of work before you can have any fun.
