if it is OEM it has to have a connector somewhere...it its aftermarket at one point the wires were connected to the OEM one wether it soldered or connector or ghetto twisted together....you mean accent LED lights....i though you ment turnsignals or brake light....for those just cut where you want and clamp in some quick disconnects (radio shack/home depot or lowes should have em) it will be better for the long run..

Dunno if this applies.... http://www.oznium.com/led-flex-strips

"

Can the LED strips be cut or trimmed?
Yes! You can easily cut the LED strips. Use a sharp utility knife. The LEDs are wired in groups of 3, so you should cut every 3 LEDs.
Note: Some of the shorter lengths can't be cut because of a critical power wire inside. Before you cut, just make sure you won't be cutting a power wire, otherwise your LED strip could be damaged. Can the cut section of the strip be re-used?
While it is physically possible, it is not a simple procedure and not worth the effort. For practical purposes, you are better off discarding the cut portion. "

Yes. Just put male/female connectors on. I've done many bikes like that.

Radio shack is the cheapest ... but they tend to be sold out of a lot of stuff.

The connectors used for a battery tender work, too.

picked up the polarized connectors from radio shack...When I connect these do I have to seperate the red/black wires or can i just hook them all into the same connectors?
