Tonight – I ran down to do some soldering and some cutting to put in a new waterproof metripack connector instead of the OE for the stator connection. This is a high voltage, high amperage line from the stator and any resistance in the connection generates serious heat.
The OE connection is known to be bad for this use, and many people have had these melt completely or to the point they either disconnect, or short each other and in turn burn up a $400 stator on the motor.
The new Metripack will hold better connections, create less heat, and wont let water in to oxidize the connections. This was one of the main issues I planed on resolving on the bike.
