Where can i source electrical connectors

I found a chewed up wirein the 2005 636 barn find bike. I can’t remove the pin from the connector so I was just thinking of sourcing a connector and soldering the wires to the harness. Any ideas of a junker or direct source for these?

Check with Summit Racing. They may not have it, but you never know.

Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

Try Cycle Terminal

http://www.cycleterminal.com/motorcycle-connectors.html

Scroll down looks like they might have what you need, really need the Crimper tool but you might be able bend tabs down and solder wire to keep it together.
But the crimping tool is the bomb !

Thank you! Just placed an order! I tried doing a search on various sites and didn’t know how to properly term the connector so I couldn’t find it

Why can't you remove the pin? All these type connectors are made with removable pins so unless plastic connector body melted (not apparent from your photo) pin should come out. You can buy extractor tools that make this much easier.

Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

Cycle Terminal is my favorite, but also keep Eastern Beaver and if working on an older bike, Vintage Connections in mind. I've used all of them from time to time and they all stock some variety of tools.

They don't have motorcycle specific wiring/connectors but Tanner's Electronics in Carrollton does have alot of older stuff that may work for ya.

Eastern Beaver is the favorite of many. It's run by a Canadian that lives in Japan. Because of vagaries in the way the postal system works, the shipping time from him can sometimes be a bit excessive, at least to me. Cycle Terminal gets things to me a bit quicker on average. I still use all three depending upon what I need though.

All of these guys are running comparatively low margin, low volume businesses that are likely to be more a service to us than they are profitable to them. Without them doing good quality electrical work would be much more difficult.

Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

I used Weather Pack brand connectors when wiring up race cars.

I have the components to build 2, 3, 4 and 6 wire connections. You are welcome to what I have to get you running once again.

Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

When I was riding an ancient Honda, I used Old Bike Barn for a lot of things. Don't know what make you're riding, but I also found Fay Myers Honda of Centennial CO to be a good source.

Locally, you might call Bates. They at least used to have a pretty good assortment of parts stripped off of donor bikes.

I already ordered the connector. I appreciate the offer! Maybe you can help direct me how to remove the pins. I haven’t been able to do so

Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

The yellow handled drivers are actually pin extractors. It's a hollow tube that fits over the wire/pin inside the connector and as you stab it, it collapses the "wings" of the pin that grab into the connector housing.

Some pins have 1, some 2 and some have 3 sets. The GM sets had 2 sets of wings on opposite sides.

Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

I think for your connector, you will need something like the white handled terminal extraction tools shown a little bit down on this page. I've often used a very small screw driver or a pick. I saw you had a pick in one of your pictures. If you wait until you get the new pieces, I think you'll be able to see just where you need to push for the release. It's easier with some connectors than with others. there are also some youtube videos out there, but I don't have a good one to point you too off hand.

Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

I received the connector and associated pins, etc. I’m still stumped on how to remove the pins. I don’t know if I should cut all 3 wires off of the old connector and just make a mini harness with the new set or if I should just remove the one damaged wire from the connector on the bike and solder in a new wire. Pics show the pin in question.

I’m a novice when it comes to soldering so I have been practicing with videos from youtube.
