Stator-OEM looks new

I unplugged the factory connector and it looks like new. Would you pack the connector with dielectric grease and pass on the soldiering of the 3 yellow wires? I don't want to mess with it if its ok to grease it and button it up.

Pack it up with grease, and you can pretty much guarantee that the next time you look at it, it will be melted.

I made the same (wrong) choice on my 1100. The connector looked fine, so I cleaned it up with some electrical contact cleaner and put it back together. A few months later I had another look at it, and was shocked to find it melted and on the verge of shorting out.

Take the time and do the cut and solder fix.
