This forum seems to be the most appropriate section to post in. I am freshening up all the wiring on my 50. I am running an aftermarket rotor kit, CDI, and coil. There are tons of bullet connectors, slide connectors, etc. connecting all of the wires together. Most of the wires are way too long, and I want to cut the wires down to the right length to keep the wiring from looking so messy. I am wondering, and I am no expert with electrical, can I snip off the bullet and slide connectors and use just straight wire? Example: The ground wire for my coil has a male slide connector on one end. The wire is connected to the ground wire coming out of the CDI by using a female slide connector on the ground wire coming out of the CDI.
