R/R relocation

Hey everyone!!!

Friday night I relocated my r/r and have a question. Has anyone put some sort of protective boot over the wiring harness connection point? If not and you went the route of putting dielectric grease on it instead, do you put this grease on the male and/or female connection? I have never used dielectric grease before and wanted to be sure I used it properly.

Thank you in advance,
Steven

Nope. I just angled my downward as water would naturally run out if any got in. You figure where it was sitting. Nasty spot, Alot have used the grease & that should be enough of a protectant. Do you have a pic of how yours is mounted/

On a single wire connector you pack the female side, then plug in the male pin.

On a multiple wire connector you pack the male pin connector with grease, then plug in the female side and also pack the back end of the connectors.

Wipe any excess grease off the connectors, and reseal with dielectric grease anytime the connectors are separated.

Here is a link to automotive use of the grease on youtube. It is generic in nature, not specifically pointed towards use on a motorcycle.
