Also, I'm assuming then that the stock harness is robust enough to handle the increased wattage of the RS stator?
I've never used the BD harness so I'm not sure if the stock harness is still there. I ran 100W ac through the stock harness with no problems, I could see that the connectors had gotten a little warm (discolored) but no melting, there must have been some resistance (corrosion) at the bullet connectors to cause that. Typically the switches are the most effected by the increased current, I try and use a handlebar switch off a XR650L for the lights, the OE switches handle the extra power much better than most of the aftermarket switches I've seen.
