Hey guys newbie here. I have a question for the Vulcan Gods.. I have a 1986 750 vulcan with around 10,000 miles on the clock and the R/R is bad.. The problem is that the plug coming from the wiring harness is melted. I bought a whole wiring harness from egay and wouldnt ya know the only plug off of the wiring harness i need is bad aswell... I am wondering if i can just use spade conectors and just hook up the wires one by one and use silicone to keep water and stuff out.. Any help or ideas would be great. Thanks

That will work. It is best if you solder the wires to the spade connector. And don't get the wires crossed. While you are at it relocate the r/r.
BTW, welcome to the group.

They make replacement connectors you could solder onto the old wires. The info is here somewhere, but I don't see it. Think Slim and Lance may have it bookmarked.

Update: and Chavisimo wins the typing competition!

Most, if not all, of the aftermarket R/Rs are cheap Chinese stuff.

I don't know about better, but you can make your own for cheaper, and it is supposedly bulletproof, I am waiting on my rectifier to come in the mail (today or tomorrow) then i will wire it up... for more info check out this thread Beefing up the Charging System Part 1
