quick rectifier relocaton question

I found lots of usefull Rectifier relocation threads. just one quick confirmation.
Will the existing wiring lenght reach the new spot? if i understand correctly it means the connector may be outside the headlight bucket to reach. That's when i use the self amalgamating tape to seal it right? but i've also heard that i can get it to reach with the connector staying in the bucket. What do you guys think? which is it? will i need to lengthen the loom?

Thanks.

I was able to find just enough lenght to move mine without having to pull it from the bucket. There wasn't much length left over so you'd want to turn your bars full lock left and right to determine if you need to worry about the connectors being pulled apart after it's been relocated.

So just pull wire out of the bucket with the rectifier? Leaving the connectors in the bucket. Sounds easy enough. I'll give it a go and see what happens. Thanks.

Where are you planning to relocate it?

At some point, I'd like to upgrade to a mofset unit and tuck it away outta sight...

If I understand correctly, the OE model should have decent airflow.

You got 'em, Mike?

I've been brainstorming the same as OP. I have the Mosfet, but want to relocate it to my battery box. From what I understand the harness can be split through the tape to isolate the R/R wires, but it would be nice not to have to do that.

Regarding OP, I have my original R/R relocated, for the time being, to the stock horn location. I couldn't keep the connector in the bucket. FWIW it's a hideous eyesore to me. I can't wait to get that project finished.

+1 for the harness extension please. I have the R/R but have been reluctant to cut into the harness.

I'm simply not good enough at electrical yet to cut into the loom.
