Best way to crimp small disconnects


Motorcycles do not fall under the National Electrical Code. I am not sure what the auto laws are, but I see soldered ends of wires under mechanical lugs all the time in both machines and autos.

The NEC does say that a connection cannot depend soley on solder. (if it applied here you could still do both)

While the greese does not help the electrical properties of the connection, it does help keep the connection from rusting. It is a great idea if one needs to replace a part often.
