Default Lengthening leads on the ECU?

I'm installing all my equipment in my Super Bandit right now and I'm running into a snag with the start gas solenoid...
I don't have enough length on the wire to reach the ECU, I'm short by about 7" (of wire!)
Can I splice in extra wire on the solenoid to make it longer?

If the answer is YES, then:

Would it be better to add wire to the solenoid or the ECU lead?

Is it just a 2 wire system (there are 4 pins, that's why I ask).

Can I just use the same gauge wire to lengthen it or should I go up one wire gauge size bigger?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry for this late reply....

Its easier to lengthen the wire on the solenoid side. It is a 2-wires coupled to 4-pins connector.
