Please help with electrical repair on 1299 S

So this happened yesterday, please see pic attached. My 1299 S would not start. Powered up, but did not engage the starter. After hours and hours of investigative work, I found a wire on the bike side of a connector leading up to the Start/Stop button had separated from the back of the connector, unfortunately at the main bundle on the engine bundle main bundle side. Looks like it possibly vibrated out over time? I Needed a quick temporary fix so I completely bastardized a temporary patch to get through the day. Now I need to get it fixed properly. I will not use my local Ducati dealership for a myriad of reasons. They will want to replace the Entire main wiring bundle at a cost IíM sure of thousands of dollars. Is soldering in a new 4 pin connector a relatively easy fix? Iíd like to do it myself if I could figure out the name or type of this connector and/or where to buy? If anyone knows please let me know? Any other reasonable suggestions for a good quality fix short of replacing the entire main wiring bundle are welcome.

How many wires are in the connector? I can't tell from the photo. Here's where I get my connectors from - https://www.digikey.com/products/en/...319?k=jwpf%205

It is a 4 wire or 4 pin connector I believe.

You should have been able to de-pin the connector and replace it.
That fix is rough as guts
Thanks from Firemike

Then you need to get both male and female 4-pin connectors with pins and replace the entire connector - you should buy this crimper as well... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...1?ie=UTF8&th=1
Cut each connector open without cutting the wires and remove each pin - then cut the pins off the wires so you don't waste length.
Thanks from Firemike

I would remove the entire connector , solder in new wires and stager the joints, placing heat shrink over prior to joining, also slide a nice piece of Lapp (make) black heat shrink over the one end that will cover all the inner joints, when it's all done the shrink will pull it all nice and tight, neat and it will look proper, it will look like an OEM loom and no one will ever know.

Thanks from Firemike

Just as a follow up. First off, thank you everyone for the advice and feedback. Also, I found another source for Ducati (and other makes) style electrical connectors. Bike Sport Developments

I would have considered that problem a COLD SOLDER JOINT ,considering that it looks like it is still connected (you cut the wire,so?).Regardless,replacing the male/female connectors was a smart move ,INSURING that all was correct . Many THANX for the ALERT , shows us that Quality Control is possibly , NOT THE BEST and others should be AWARE of this
I am @ the moment getting my bike ready for first spring run and this is something that helps me in future maintenance .

Ducati put a connector in for a reason, I have never seen anyone else with a stuffed connector/bad loom.
