Unequal lead lengths from S400 motor to ESC... is this a problem...

because of CG issues (long story), I've had to cut the motor (long can 400) to ESC leads in different lengths. Basically the Negative Motor to ESC Lead is about 1 inch and the Positive is around 2 inches. Is this a problem? I'm mostly concerned if this robs any power to the motor or damage my ESC (GWS ICS400).
The motor seems to run fine although I get an occassional glitch but I think that's more from the servo extensions than the motor to esc leads.

That will not cause any problems. If anything leads that short will help both power and preventing interference. The difference in lengths has no effect.
