Ducati's also (at Least 996's) melt those for fun. Did the MOSFET conversion and the guy selling the kit provided new connectors to replace the existing one, regardless of how it looked. A case of not IF it will fail but WHEN it will fail.Good call on the Metri pac. The VFR series suffers from the exact same chronic issue, the cheapo factory supplied connectors barely sufficient for use on an old RC car.
"Kit" was a bit of a loose term. It was essentially a MOSFET R/R, some appropriate gauge wires and some loose electrical connectors. A good amount of cutting and soldering required to fit, certainly not plug-n-play.As posted when I did conversions 10-11 years ago.....I chose to eliminate mid connectors entirely on both my 900SS and VFR. Weatherproof Furukawa connectors at the Mosfet allow disconnection for whatever reason (diagnostic or removal). Furthermore a mid-connector can always be retrofitted if desired for any reason.
On both of mine ...zero issues. no reason to reinvent the wheel....LITFA (leave it the F alone)
Various methods exist for individually preferred mounting and wiring methods. Back then, commercially available "kits" didn't exist...it was fully DIY.
