I agree with the solder and heat shrink method. I found my wires has overheated at the factory connectors and turned brittle. One of them broke while I was trying to unplug it. I cut out the connectors, and soldered them together. Been fine ever since. I believe those stock connectors are the cause of a lot of stator failures, because they get loose, and develop high resistance, which causes both the wires and the stator to overheat. I prefer connections that are not likely to develop high resistance. Soldering all the wires in the charging system is common practice with older Goldwings.
