Was sitting at idle one day and smelled some smokey stuff so I shut the bike off and this is what I found. My guess - poor connection in the plug created a ton of resistance, melted the plastic and it started to cascade. Had the same connector to use but decided to use a six-pin plug instead to create some distance between the connections and isolate any single point of failure. Ran for about 20min from idle to 4k rpm without getting more than warm to the touch. I may go back to the standard three pin plug or just leave it. Who knows.

Is that what is left of the stator plug connector?

if so, those yellow wires look awefully thin, like the wrong guage of wire was used

I could not agree more on that - although I'm afraid those wires are actually the stock ones for the harness. I am considering using the thicker gauge and bypassing those smaller ones. I will monitor for now and if heat becomes an issue again it will happen. Resistances were on-par.
