no not really. for example. a fk04. saddle pack. so if you were to use deans, the wire from one side would have to go all the way under the upper deck and meet up with the other side of the batt's wire, and then join to the plug. (i dont think very many people want to bother with taking the upper deck eache time, if they were, then yes it would be the same length but itd be easier to hardwire than take the upper off each time to change a batt.) so unless you cut the deans plug in half the wires will tend to get longer.
I have seen lots of installs with long Deans plugs attached to batteries and motors. My point is that if I had to install Deans on my Xray I am sure I could minimize the wire. The solution would be to install the male deans plug very close to the speedo...like less than an inch of wire so its almost like you are plugging the battery into the speedo directly. Then trim the wires with the plug attached to the battery so they are just the right length. In my picture if the battery had a deans plug the black wire would be 3 or 4 inches and the red would be about 2 inches. I am sure I could make it work if I had to.
