I wanted to extend the cables between the wheel and the controller, but they used a locking Molex-style plug and receptacle, and I couldn't find a replacement. I cut the controller wires since it would be cheaper and easier to replace the controller than the wheel if I messed up. I bought a header pin kit to extend the encoder signals, but I think the existing wires were too thick, and I may have misused the crimper.
Naive attempt

I spent nearly two hours fussing with the header pin, and even if they worked, I would worry about them pulling loose. I removed my work and extended the wires with solder and shrink tubes. The power wires were standard bullet connectors that I could find at a hardware store or online. I will put the controller in a backpack, so I made the wires longer than necessary, so I can store the slack. I bundled everything in a spiral wrap to protect and contain it.
