where to get r/r connectors?

esteemed riders of the vulcan 750:

i relocated my r/r a while ago... just noticed this week that the cable which i'd tucked up behind the side panel fell out and has been rubbing on the rear tire. i have one of the r/r's with the attached six pin 'pigtail' and the plastic connector on both sides (the wire coming from the main wiring harness and the wire coming from the r/r) has been completely worn through... so much so that bare wire is showing.

where can i get the connector coming from the wiring harness?

thanks.

paul

do you mean just the plastic connector or do you need the wires? cuz the plastic connector isn't a problem. but the wires might be. you can always splice in new wire of course. when I am not on my cell phone I have the link for the connector

thanks for the reply, jace. i was thinking it would be the other way... that the plastic connector would be tough to find, but that i could use pretty much any wire of appropriate gauge.

the part that wore down is the plastic connectors... they're joined right now (obviously), and they were wearing down against the wheel... so i'm thinking if i just get both a male and a female end, i should be able to splice the existing wires in there.

if you have a link, i'd appreciate it! thanks much.

that might work, jthill. looks like they have some 6 pin connectors on that site which look pretty close to what our bikes use. i just want to make sure to get exactly the right connector so that if i replace the r/r in a year or so i don't have to go through the whole rewiring deal again.

think those 6 pin connectors are pretty standard? maybe radio shack might even carry them?
