If you are installing wiring on your bike consider these connectors. They are made for RC aircraft and are extremely reliable, easy to connect and disconnect, can take high loads and they are very solid. WAY better than the cheap automotive style connectors that you buy at napa, shucks, ect. I just installed my 200W Ricky Stator and used these connectors to replace the ones that came on the stator assy, wires going to the lights, switches, ect ect. When you are in the middle of know where it pays to have solid electrical connections.



These are the connectors, available at any Hobby Shop.




Here they are out of the bag. They are solder on connections.




Here is a 14 guage wire soldered onto the male connector.




Add the heat shrink tubing to prevent shorts.




Connect the two halves and your done. Nice solid connection that you won't have to worry about. thumb




Here's a shot of my Ricky Stator harness with the new connectors installed on my XR650R.

I like that. That is one thing I need to do still on my KLR is upgrade the wiring, at least to the headlight. Do you also have a preferance on what type of wire to use? Or just regular automotive wire?

I just use some good quality automotive wire, Napa has a good selection of colors and wire sizes.
