Hi I am considering making a new wiring loom for my 404 out of better grade wires but first I need to know if the is anywhere that I can source new pins to go inside the convector blocks ?
Anyone got any suggestions ?
Thanks kito

RS components sell these things but not sure what size you need etc. I hope that your eyesight is good as they are a bugger to crimp on properly.

RS do some really good stuff, But most of their connectors dont fit the blocks that they fit to bikes. sounds like a very good idea to build your own loom but I think you will have to replace all the connectors everywhere on the bike

I have plugs and pins, 2 way 3 way 4 way 6 way and 9 and 12 way, no cdi plugs but they are the waterproof type so usually ok

Maybe I would be better making it with all new waterproof connectors on the loom and components . I was thinking of using a thicker/stronger cable. If it can fit in is the any drawbacks to that ?

Not much advantage going with a thicker cable, just makes the loom a larger dia and more difficult to thread through the bike, just replug existing loom and retape using amalgamating tape

Ok thanks monty. My wires are getting old and have been hacked into a bit so I was thinking I'd just make a full loom. Are most of the wires 1.5mm do you think ?

Auto wiring is a different size works in gauge and not mm Google a chart.

Auto wire is made up of very fine multi strand copper, so its more flexible than industrial installation cable, 1.5mm is too big, its more like 0.75/1mm,

Thin wall auto wiring 1mm=16.5amp 1.5mm=21amp . So 1mm should be ample then for all right ?

Your biggest load will be the head light, which is probably a 35/25w bulb plus a 5w tail light and some 1.2w dash lamps = approx 44w divide by 12v = 3.6A

You can get away with 0.75mm
