The small amount of "wiring" I did on my beast was to snip the OEM pins and replace with .093 Molex pins and connectors. I acquired a Molex crimping tool and it works well. A quick solder and shrink tubing finishes the job. Is there a drawback with using Molex instead of the OEM pins/connectors?
The crimping tool is available through Electrical Connection.

I normally will just solder the pins onto the wire after using the crimping tool.
The only draw back with using Molex connectors is that they do not physically mate up with the Hitachi Style connectors on the bike. Electrically they work as advertised. With the Hitachi style connectors you can fabricate plug and play harnesses for the bike. Using Molex, you have to modify the wiring on the bike to mate things up.
limpy45 and BLUTHUNDR31 like this.
