Stator wire compromised :(

Hey guys. I'm new to the forum here officially, but have been following for a while. I recently ran into some issues with my stator going out on my 2002 RC51, so I decided to attempt the replacement myself. I purchased this stator ( which for most purposes fit the RC just fine. However, I ran into an issue when I attempted first startup, as you can clearly see in the pictures. The distance between the connection to the stator and the grommet was too long, causing some slack to be caught by the fly-wheel. Now my cable is minced. I certainly have some cleanup to do, oil to drain, and such, but I'm wondering specifically about repair. Does anyone see any harm in stripping those wires back and doing a solder repair job at that location? I know I've seen it for the connection to the rectifier, but never for the connection to the stator within the cover. What do you think? Or, should I cut my losses and buy a different brand that has the right length?
