I used the female versions of these and they all fit just fine when I did my VR swap.

Sweekster,
Yup crap hard plastic covers that do not resist UV radiation and dry out & crack. Plus the plastic is so darn hard that crimping them requires Popeye arms :-}

Guys,
In another VR thread I did give the proper part numbers for the RS Components spade connectors with silicon rubber sheaths. Here they are again (& they are available thro the internet http://www.rs-components.com/index.html)

6.3mm spade terminals (male)....Pt/No. 488-1279
6.3mm recepticals (female)........ Pt/No. 488-1235
Receptical covers .........................Pt/No. 488-1314
spade covers................................Pt/No 488-1320

These are soft flexible covered terminals that can be silicon glue injected to really keep out water for dirt bikes (even power washers) or just use conductive grease in them or use as is which has been fine for everyday wear & tear in the UK.


Crap I wish I would have seen this a few hours ago...I just finished up with connectors that look like the ones in the example. Ill put this on the "preventative maintenance" list and check/replace the connectors in a few months or so...hopefully they'll last that long.

Geo, I think I had looked up those part numbers when you posted them the first time and could find them on the RS site.

Hi everybody,

So I finally finished my VR swap and wanted to put up some pictures. I was thinking that these could supplement tommyj27's tutorial (which is the one I followed). :shocker

I went ahead and mounted it with the fins vertical. It seems the airflow from front to back compared to up and under the fairing is negligible. This allowed me to use the rearward original mounting hole/bolt for the plate, the upper VR mounting hole with a longer bolt, and drilled a new hole for the bottom bolt. Clearance looks good, so I'm not going to grind down the HS.

all rectifier's are pretty much the same. when i first got my bike together it died a few times (one of which, my avatar pic, dead bike on the side of a highway) because it seemed to have a loose connection from the unit itself and not charging the battery at all. I just got a new rectifier that's meant for a suzuki VL800 and rigged it in! :D

Don,
Well done, a timely reminder of what can be done properly if you put your mind to it.

Trust the rest of you Inmates are well ? Alas the physio has re-negged on allowing me to ride again even on a much lighter bike GRRR!

But thanks to my brother and my brothers in arms I have taken up shooting again :-)

Ride while you have the health & strength is all I can say :cheers:
