Stator and Wiring help

Hello everyone.

Alright so I did the tuxedo stator mod. Not the best idea in my opinion. It is wreaking hell on my life. You can check out my other thread here.

Anyways. I have narrowed down my problems to the way I did my replacement stator and my pickup coils. When I did the mod to the stator one of the pickup coils was not removable, the screw that was it in split and the entire head came off. So I opted to cut the pickup coil wires and after I was done I would solder them back together and cover them with heat shrink. Well that was stupid because the heat shrink I used was not oil safe. After opening it up, I noticed the shrink wrap broke apart and all of that good stuff. So now here is my question how in the hell do I cover the wires and attach them all?

I do not have the money to buy a new stator, or anything like that. This bike is so far running up too 2.5K, I just cant take it anymore.

This is an image of the stator having exposed pieces in the wire. Theres a bunch of cuts in the wires, that is how I got the stator.

The stator works fine. Everything worked fine, but I believe once I ran the bike the shrink wrap I used started to go away and then led me to a bike that would not run right. Epically with the pickup coils. I will post a picture of them tomorrow.

I used THESE weatherproof connectors for my pickup coil wires.

I also used a cable tie jb welded to the stator cover to hold the connectors out of the way.

I am not sure how resistive it would be for oil, but you could paint on some liquid tape and seal it up. add a few layers to protect the wires and let it cure completely between coats.

Plasti-Dip site:

The Tech sheet says it is resistive to some petroleums.

The tape dip is resistive to Petroleum, but its not petroleum proof, and will deteriorate just like the heatshrink tubing... there is oil proof heatshrink tubing, but its really spendy and hard to find.

EDIT*** HERE is the heat shrink tubing I used to use in the service to patch internal electronic fuel injectors ...the fuel injectors were located inside the heads, and were consantly under oil, never had a problem with the heatshrink deteriorating,
