Question v strom rectifier

I just finished replacing the stator on my 08 dl650 with 46 k miles. The connectors for the rectifier are sandwiched between the frame and lower airbox and not accessible unless you remove the tank and airbox, and then just barely. Any reason I cant flip the rectifier over so the wiring is on the bottom? the leads are long enough and that would enable one to do the work without removing the tank as the leads would be below the frame rail. I don't have picture ability sorry. emti

That'll work BUT, slip cable ties across the length of the connectors so they can't shake apart. (Burns the connectors out if they do) and tie them down so they can't chafe against anything.
