def avoid the Far East copies....and consider upgrading your stator wiring as well. The yellow wire in the pic is factory supplied gauge (18?) I used the pictured 12 gauge the full length....stator to RR eliminating any mid connector.
Already on my list to get done. I've not even looked at where the bloody stator is located yet though!
I've got plenty of (ready? ... this is a mouthful!) ... Teflon insulated, fiberglass reinforced, 19 strand, pre tinned, oxygen free copper, MilSpec, Aircraft grade wire.
(whew!). I use that with "sealant filled" heat shrink tubing.
better around heat than vinyl or PVC insulated wire, and being 19 strand it's more flexible and smaller in outer diameter than 7 strand wire is of the same gauge. I use it in my audio processors and modular synthesizers, I also use it for the power cables inside of synths. It's so tough that it requires very sharp, very precisely adjusted wire strippers to strip the insulation, otherwise you'll just end up tearing it all to hell.
I don't have any 12ga of that stuff on hand, but all you need to do is run a twisted pair of 16ga and you've already created a conductor that has more copper in it than a single strand of 12ga. Being 19 strand, a twisted pair of 16ga won't have a very large outer diameter. That's the beauty of 19 strand aircraft wire! Another benefit is that the fiberglass reinforced Teflon (aka "Tefzel") insulation does not burn back when you solder it (not at all !!). Really great stuff. The USAF specs it for the F16 ... so I reckon it's plenty good enough for synthesizers .... and motorcycles.
At $0.09 cents per foot it's a screamin' deal. $9.00 per 100 foot spool.
Stripping it does require a special technique, combined with really well adjusted, very sharp wire strippers .... you've been advised!
