I will probably try to give more slack to mine, if it brakes i will solder more wire to it and add a new connector or reuse the older one, i will figure a way to take apart the old one, as i said the **** wires weren't born inside the connector
It’s this attitude that makes motorcycle people what they are. I know people that don’t even know the hoods of their car open. That’s fine for them. If you really get into bikes learning to work on them Is part of the experience.For new owners and first time owners of a motorcycle i bet you it can feel like that, i am not too worried tho, i am pretty good with tools and fixing stuff, soldering a new connector is no big deal.
Correctly applied, a solder joint can be strong and offer good conductivity, but a solder joint is also brittle and is prone to failure under continual vibration - Exactly the conditions we can expect in the harsh motorsport environment. This is why we avoid solder joints at all cost in situations where reliability is critical.
Thanks for the tip @Rich T - will keep in mind when it comes to do it. I was able to scrounge a connector, should be getting it in a few days.Soldering and crimping each have pros and cons...
This ☝👆☝I know this isn't especially helpful, but since I actually expected the same might happen to me, and since the failure is always in the exact same place, I used heat shrink tubing (before any failure) over the end of the connector and first half-inch or so of the wires, as a preventative measure (to keep them from bending back and forth right at the terminal). Time will tell if I helped or hurt things, I suppose.
