Electrical Question - May 20, 2010, 04:20 PM

Can i pull the metal clips out of this plug and re-clip the wire to it and plug it back in? Damn wire were chewed up by a rat or something. I might have to do all of the wires on that plug.

It's an 08 R6.

Absolutely, just keep track of which wires go to which position. Sometimes fitting new metal bits into existing connectors is a pain though. Start with a trip to radio shack. You might have to order some pieces though. More often than not, I'm disappointed after trips to radio shack.

Yeah i'm definitely doing one at a time.

So i would have to get new metal pieces to put in the clip? I can't just use the existing ones?

I'll go by radio shack tomorrow.

It depends. Sometimes they are difficult to remove from the plastic housing. And then when you get them out, they can be a real PITA to extract off the wires. Really those are not intended for reuse. I'm a reuse kind of guy, and I have never had any success. Part of my problem though is related to not being very patient.

Ok. I'll look more into it. I found this site, but i'm not sure if any of these connectors would be similar to what's on there, lol. http://www.z1enterprises.com/catalog.aspx?pid=YPEL1

I'll inspect them closely later. Thanks!

Haha i'm pretty sure it's gone. I pulled the whole nest out, nasty stuff. And have taken the seat and fairings off a couple of times, along with lifting the tank up, haven't seen anything.

Here is the pics from when i pulled all the crap out

The guy i bought the bike off of lived in the middle of no where in Scottsville, Va. It was literally in the freaking woods, haha. He hadn't ridden the bike in a long time. I'm guessing he stored it in a shed, that's if he did store it.

Resolder at the wires with a small soldering tip and wrap the ugly mess with electrical tape.

LOL holy crap... never seen anything like that lol

If you haven't already, check and see if any hoses or other wires been chewed up cause you don't want anything failing on you while you're riding.
