After many years of faff and bodging, I bit the bullet and bought one of these:

makes terminating 3.9mm bullet crimps so much easier / better.

I'll have one of these too and will PM you details over the weekend, I'm also interested in a headlight relay loom if you can produce these as well?

I'd be interested if anyone has info on sourcing the bike specific connectors?

I've always used kojaycat.co.uk and autoelectricsupplies.co.uk for connectors, takes a bit of hunting to get the connector you're after.

I've not specifically sourced Suzuki connectors, so can't guarantee you'll find what you want,  but I've changed every connector on a 350lc loom with like for like without too much trouble.

On most later model Wees and all Glees, there is also a coolant bottle under the rear tank support that has to be moved out of the way.

It is the ABS models early in their availability and possibly more in the later years.

Yea it can be used to power the lights, along with heated grips, sat navs, heated vests, weapons systems etc, anything you want to come on with the ignition.

Cheers Mate
Got mine in the post today :grin:
I'm over the moon as I was going to pay £80 on EBay for a factory made unit.
Fitted it in around 15 minutes, found the connector under the tank and didn't even have to lift it to connect it up.
Keep up the good work  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

Cheers
