Bullet electrical connectors

Postby rustyparts » Wed Sep 23, 2015 9:57 am



Does anyone have an echonomical source the small male and female bullet connectors found on the early GL 1000? I have ordered what I thought was the same size but they were a little larger. Any suggestions?

I found the same size bullet connectors as stock at Oreilly's auto parts. Can't remember the price but they were reasonable.

I've seen them at some of the auto parts stores like O'Reilly's & Auto Zone in various sizes.
If nothing else, you could replace with a spade connector that's even more readily available.

I checked several local sources but don't recall if I checked O'Reilly's or not. I'll check them out. I appreciate your quick response. Rusty

I don't have a "vintage" bike (although some think of the 1500 as one), but still bookmarked as a reference that I could give to anyone else that might need it.
