wire harness idea for stator

wondering if this would be a good idea to connect stator wires. or if anyone has used a harness to connect the wires. seems like it would be good since it is waterproof

The best option is to SOLDER the wires and heat shrink them.

The heat generated in the contacts seems to be the reason some connectors get hot and actually melt. ANY PIN or BULLET connector will not be a perfect connection, so they are prone to generate heat.

If you leave the stock bullet connectors on the wires, it is best to NOT bunch themtogether so they don't get hot and melt which could cause them to short together.

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.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

thanks, i thought it looked like a good idea but was worried about the wires getting to hot and melting the plug. i will go with solder and heat shrink.
