New blinkers, short wire

Finally sprayed the light and housing so my lights match and it'll match the tank. Only problem is the left blinker wire isn't long enough. Short by about an inch and a half. Do I just snip the tip of it and wire in a longer piece and then make sure it's sodered? Not sure.. This is it. Forgot to get a pic while it was on the bike.

That'd work just fine....I had to do same for all my signals and tombstone...its best to have a lil slack wire, than to try and pull it, have it stretch, and possibly break inside....

Solder would make for the best hold, I don't have a gun so I just used this style crimp connector. Help up fine for over a year now. http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-imag...-image11342424

Butt splices are ok but I really don't like using them that often. If you can solder than do it, heck you could even use a wire nut and be fine.

I have a few scuffed up housings I've been trying to see if I wanted to paint or not. Yours looks good bro.

Angell and Nitro; Butt connectors are good if stripped of the plastic, wire crimped in place then flux, solder and shrink.

Lol if you are going to go through all that you might as well just solder with no crimp connector and heat shrink over the splice. I agree that they do add a little bit of rigidity to the splice but that is way overkill for what he is trying to do here.

For turn signals anyway I'd be more apt to use bullet connectors soldered on.

thats what I would do... solder in a bullet connector and call it good.
