A few days ago i wrote in about a strange electrical problem, i spent hours today tracing it out, disconnecting all connections cleaning and reconnecting and tracing out with a meter, the problem is in the 24 pin connector that goes into the fairing, one pin is burnt and the rest are corroded does anyone have a spare connector from a used harness that you do not need? replacement at this point seems to be the only option..... or should i hard wire all 24 wires PLEASE HELP if you can. i would love to ride again now that the weather is better in NE.

hi mike iam not up to speed on the 1200 but you will have to get one with some pig tails attached i would get rid of the connector cut the wires back about 1/2in for a good connection and solder with heat shrink cover

I'd probably just jumper the offending few... not all 25...

Give these guys a try, Frenchy usually has some bikes he's salvaging parts from.

Since I haven't seen the offending connector or contacts, you might be able to just replace the contacts that go into the connector. They usually snap in and can be removed with a small tool to move the tabto let them out. I know on the helmet connector the contacts are different than any that I have seem in my line of work. If the plastic housing isn't burnt then this could be an option rather than redoing the whole connector. If you can't find a replacement contact then as mentioned above just fix the offending wires. I would'nt hardwire them unless you are 100% sure you will never have to take that area apart again. Find you a protected slip together pair of contacts. If you can't then put in unprotected contacts and cover with shrink tubing.

I want to thank everyone for there suggestions but after cleaning the contacts with clr and only running one jumper wire for the burnt pin, the connector problem is still there, with the bike running if i wiggle the connector all the original problems come back, so i have decided to hard wire all 24 wires.....wabita...only 23 more wires to go.

I had this problem a few times. Like it was said already I pulled each pin out and spliced bad ones. 30 min job.

Make sure you disconnect the battery first.
Good Luck,
