Plastic connector bodies for electronics.

I am in the process of adding some extra lighting to the sides of the bike using aftermarket LED's. To keep everything looking oem and neat I would like to use some of the plastic connector bodies that mate to the factory wiring. Does anyone know where I can find some easily?? Primarily need 2 wire connectors. About 6 would do me and give me a couple for boo boos. This is going on a 1999 GL1500 SE I found late last summer with 26790 miles on it. Looks to be in very good condition so far. I am in the process of checking it all over this winter.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

These are the connectors I used for adding LED lights on my trike. Tower has a deal where you can buy them in bulk if youre adding more than a couple lights. I usually shrink cover them after putting some dielectric grease on the outside of them if theyre in an area I know is going to get water such as on the front end or in the cowl.

I see the 2 pin connectors and pins (male/female) but I do not see the "crimping tool" necessary to crimp the pins to the wire. Do you folks just solder the wire to the pins?



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 connectors sold by Cyclemax are Hitachi type connectors, the same as the connectors on the GL1500. They mate up perfectly.
I bought and have used all three sets of connectors.

Electrical Connection also sells the connectors. https://electricalconnection.com/?s=hitachi
If you look at the bottom you can see that they also sell the crimper for the connector pins.
