87 aspencade wiring

Postby steve allen » Mon Jul 12, 2010 4:32 pm



I have an 87 aspy that has a 4" wiring connector under shelter on top of left side that joins wiring harness to rectifier.......mine has several wires burnt. both ends have connectors and I cant find one, any ideas? anyone have one? each end has 6-8 wires, and in between, it also has what looks like 2 transistors.

Last thing first, I think the item that looks like a transistor is actually a diode. There may be a label on it stating that.

I recently purchased an assortment of connectors from http://easternbeaver.com/index.html He has a wide variety of connectors for motorcycles and also the pins for them. These pins need a special crimping tool which is pricey. Alternative is to solder the wire to the pins. He has instructions on his site for crimping or soldering. He's in Japan but I understand he's Canadian. Took a week to get the connectors I ordered.

There is a wire harness for a 1200 at http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayI ... gory=34284 Ask him if it includes the connector and wires you need. He answers questions late in the day.

I found that this peice is called a noise suppresser, and can be remove. I did remove it, hard wired the 3 burnt wires and reconnected the connector to each other without 4'' peice, so far, so good! Thanks for your help and reply

I've used Vintage Connections for several connectors and have been quite happy with their parts and service.
