Hello

anyone have any recommendations for what loom to get for a complete re-wire please?

Is the answer always buy the more expensive SIP and avoid all UK based ebay offerings?

Do they all tend to come with handle bar sub-loom as a separate item?

Thanks in advance

Get a sip one....some of the Uk ones are functional but have diff colours..ie the last e bay one i got works perfect..once you realise the double green should be double blue..may up set your OCD... some e bay ones also have huge terminals that had to be cut off and nice little loops made instead

thanks for that; I did wonder. Maybe that is why the SIP is a more expensive....

The current loom matches the wiring diagram almost not at all and whilst recent judging by the bright colours, is falling apart and is rubbish, having few strands of copper.

The instructions were a lot better with the BGM looms from scooter center on the 12V conversion harness I bought for my GL. Good quality wiring and terminals, too.

Thanks Bluecati and chandlerman

At the same time, i asked ebay vendors:
is this suitable for non battery 150 trap headlight VBC model please?
Does it conform to factory wiring diagram colours?
Are connectors at junction box, spade or ring?
Is the handlebar section separate but included?

one answer was:
"Its a VLB - VBB Loom
So not suitable"

Hmm I thought they would be the same but perhaps with ring terminals at the junction box rather than spades.

On the question of spades, they do look large for the headlight barrel connectors, so the point about changing the terminals is well made.
