That's how I did it. Only I just put some heat shrink tubing and electrical tape on the end.Remove seat, unbolt switch from mount near kickstand, follow wires up frame pulling wires out from under zip ties as you go up, then pull out green connector from space under seat and disconnect male from female connection plug. Cut wires at male plug a few inches down, strip insulation and solder together. Get a wire end cap, the thing that is threaded inside that you twist on to the two wires and makes a nice finished connection. Use electrical tape to insulate the wire and end cap. Plug the two green male and female back together and you're done. Bolt the seat on and no more kickstand worries.
