Stator connection

Quick question. I am replacing the connections on the stator to rectifier (the yellow wires). I have some bullet connectors from Radio Shack. Will those work for that or do i have to have a special kind? I was going to use them, then seal them with heat shrink tape.

U can accually solder the wires together for a better connection. And use heat shrink for insulation.

I have no experience with them on the stator wires, how well will they stand up to the heat ? .....many VN owners prefer to solder the connections, insulate with Heat Shrink tubing.

Yes on the solder & if you need to change the stator down the road just unsolder them.

I think they're easier to get to if you pull the coolant tank.

If you use bullets...they should be soldered to the wires, other wise don't bother. It just adds places for the connection to corrode, heat up , and fail.

EDIT: I wouldn't trust anything Radio Shack sells...JMO you would probably be better off soldering them together and heat shrinking it.

On my bike at least, the wires come farther out on the right side of the bike (behind the coolant tank) or at least your hands can reach them better. On the left side I had to reach around the exhaust pipe with my left hand and there wasn't much room for the right hand.

For soldering, I just found it easier to reach the wires with both hands and not have anything in the way. You still have to route the wires up the left side when you're done soldering.
