You are better off searching for new male and female sides. Digikey.com has a lot of stuff like that.

Do you know the Molex part number? If you can find it, go to their website, pull up the part number and there is a Check Distributor Inventory button that will tell you if places like Digikey, Mouser, Newark etc have them in stock.

Didn't even think about it. I assume there are other manufacturers and Molex is like Kleenex, possible this shit isnt Molex?

There are so many different connector manufactures out there, so who knows what it is. If you are just looking to replace it, just find a connector with similar pin count and rewire it. Deutch makes some very nice, sealed connectors that are automotive grade. The sites I listed in my other post should sell almost everything you need.

The only problem you'd probably run into is trying to crimp the new leads on because they usually require specific equipment.

Hadn't gotten that far. I have 3 set of connections each with about 8-10 conductors. Good idea, I should update to automotive sealed. I was just extending the harness as I move the electronics under the seat of the CB750 rather than behind the engine.

No joke, despite the title, most OEM connectors for motorcycles like 1960+

Stuff comes from Japan so it can take a while but i've ordered hundreds of connectors without any issues, Jim is a good guy

I am next year, and I will this year is to get it running 100% mechanically correct along with fabricating the seat. If you want to help with that Zach is coming over Saturday.

But horseshit you'll help, i still have your backpack from the F4T with your disastrous power supply wiring.

There headquarters is in Lisle, but they probably wont sell direct.

Your best bet is find the part number, then try digikey, if they don't have it, try Avnet, Arrow, Mouser, TTI, and say you have a HUGE opportunity and want to get some samples.

IF you find the part number and need help from there I can probably get some from one my my distributors.

I've used Terminal Supply with good results.

Could also upgrade them to sealed connections ...

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.
