Does anyone know a person or dealer that I can purchase a turn indicator switch wiring connector from. The wiring connector is not repairable.

I've never heard of that part being available separately. I would assume it's part of the main wiring harness.

Maybe you could find one from a wrecked scooter someone is parting out.

I'd use some other three-way connector pair and solder wires directly to the switch. So still removable, but just a little bit customised.

What happened to the original connector? I'd have thought it's very unusual for these to be destroyed beyond all usefulness.

Jim! That new avatar is going to take some getting used to!

I've tried a few times without success to find the type/spec/manufacturer of the connectors used in these bikes. It's got to be out there somewhere. I'd be thrilled to know.

It'll only last a day or two. Something with which to scare little children...

Yep, part of the wiring harness.

You can pick up Hitachi style locking connectors or plain universal connectors - they make them with 2, 3, 4, 6, etc. pins - and for just about every gauge wire. Price is about $3.00-USD.



Personally, I would just solder each wire and use shrink-tube and be done with it.



... or a barrel crimp connector



... or a thin blade connector
