Those connectors are under the motor. Behind the motor shield. So probably not technically a Yamaha failure.
I thought about dipping them in some kind of emulsion but it should be tidy to remove and not get messy when comes a time or need to detach them.
So perhaps it needs to first be thinly wrapped with masking or electrical tape - NOT to water proof it, but to stop the emulsion from getting inside the tiny crevices and metal terminals. If that happens, the connectors would be stuffed.
Then after wrapping, dip the connector in some kind of wax that dries and seals the wrap including some portion of the wires protruding at either end. Something that can be peeled open without making a mess later on. I’ve seen a bottled liquid electrical insulator that dries like solid vinyl that might work best because it’s flexible.
Just thinking out loud Stu, so fully your own risk if you want to try it. Maybe try it on some surplus connectors you may have laying around, and test if removal won’t be a pain. If it works it shouldn’t affect your warranty because you haven’t really changed anything.
