Re. The video.

If you use (are supplied with) the correct connector/gauge/plug and tooling for the job in hand, crimping is 100% fine and correct and you should not solder.  It is the preferred industry standard.

Electrex are covering themselves against poor crimping.  Any electrically poor joint will overheat with a decent current through it and this is why often (not noticed on the biffers) Hondas have failed stator to RR joint plugs fail (melt).
Only do it right - no bodging please.   Keeper of the failed stator list.   John.

I intend to use this as a spare, to take with me, having owned a Bird for 17 + years I actually cut the plugs off and soldered the wires and had no problems with genny or reg rec since, I don't intend doing the same to this one as it would make things a tad more difficult to swap if need be, I appreciate your confirmation of suitability and advise, it's blokes like yourself that make forums like this worth while belonging to  :020:

Me too, but not arrived yet (ordered on 29 July, expected by 10 August), thanks for the heads up about the item.
