Default Shortening Servo and Sensor wire brushless harness

Hi,
look at this


How Do I shorten the sensor harness on the brushless motor? How do i shorten the servo wires?

Look how clean that is, I pulled the plug out of my servo plug clip thingy (part that plugs into receiver) and the wire is clamped in there good. Even if you were to break it open you would nee dsome sort of machine to clamp it shut again with the newly shortened wire.

Shortening the wires on the servo is easy. Just pick up some servo connectors & pins - http://servocity.com/html/servo_connectors___pins.html - cut the end off and reinstall the plug and your good to go.

You can also get pins for the sensor wire, but it is a little more difficult to work with the the servo wire. You might need to check with Novak or LRP to see if the have a part # for replacement pins / harness ends.

Fold it up on itself and use a wire tie. Then if you want cover it with some spiral wrap.

For the sensor wire on my 13.5, I folded the wires over a few times and then wrapped them in shrink wrap. Looks clean and protects the wires at the same time.
