    I like to use components made for the marine industry, available at West Marine, near my house. Very high quality, made to withstand saltwater.

    I would recommend Cycle-terminal as a great source for motorcycle terminals and connectors. Joe is a very helpful guy.

    Also always use dielectric grease in the pins. I use one with a fluorescent dye trace, so it’s easy to spot if there is water ingress.

    For when you can’t slip some heat shrink over a cable/connector, I always use silicone self-amalgamating tape. Turns into a solid piece of rubber once installed, as good as a cast grommet or fitting. 3M from choice, but there’s a ton of makers.



    Here in the tropics heat, dust and humidity are a nightmare for connections. My wife arrived home on Saturday with a full Christmas tree on the dash of her Toyota. A quick disconnect, squirt with contact cleaner, a brush of dielectric and plug back together and they all went away - apart from the abs light, but for that I need to take the wheels off, pull and clean the rotation sensors. Brake dust, dirt and damp make a crust that the hall-effect just can’t read through.

    It’s very good. Best boat epoxies and sealants I’ve used.

    Anyone know where to source 2.3mm round male and female connectors, as used on the Aprilia RSV Mille?

    Found them at Digikey.
    They are Molex .093 series.

    Eww leccy porn..
    Particularly like the look of that splicing crimp.




    Delphi my fave. Use the 280 and apex range. Soul satisfying putting these together, love the way the closure mech causes the terminal to seat with a muted "ting!"

    Top ones are intresting. I see they are indexed push fit but others appear treaded. Does turning the threaded element twist the wires, hopefully not? How are the wires sealed going into the back of the connector?

    Brother led i bought the same yello n black kit as the middle pic offa amazon. I'll use em on low power connections indicators etc on mates bikes who usually utilise chewing gum and its foil wrapper to bodge electrics with. Better than twist and tape but the terminals are super flimsy and wouldn't let them near a charging circuit say. Still n all good to have.

    ETV stands for Extra-Terrestrial Vehicle. The only thing better than having one is having two.
