Anyone know a good place to buy wiring bits for bikes?

I'm planning to do a full re-wire of my KTM300.

Just wondering where you guys buy your wire and connectors etc from for making bike looms??


Edit: this is what im working with at the moment!!

Wiring and stuff is easy to attain from any supplier like rapid, RS, maplins. All you need is the size of the conductor of the general wiring and with that you are set to go.


I used the above kit and there is other good stuff in his shop that will help you do a full rewire. Its lasted well too as the rear of the loom on my bike is custom made by me using bits from it!

That kit looks good... i was looking at waterproof connectors like this one: http://polevolt.co.uk/acatalog/info_K401.html


I know i can get everything from RS, Maplins, Farnell etc, but they are not dedicated automotive suppliers.

I was hoping someone might have some great links to a places where there is cool stuff i've never seen before.. Also selections of wire - rather than having to buy 30m reels of each colour i need, it would be useful to be able to buy say 5m of a selection of colours. Again, i know most do cut to length, but a selection pack of wires would be an easy (lazy) option!!

I've used the above when I was fixing an old Ninja 250 loom...


I had to strip out some wiring as someone did a terrible bodge job. Worked fine and the whole loom was fixed.


Polevolt are good but when I ordered I managed to get a hefty bill.

I didnt use the waterproof one, on the KTM I would as it sounds like your going to be hitting the green lanes so yes. But for every day use if you have a good faired bike or the routing keeps it dry from rain then I wouldn't worry about using the special ones :thumb:


I'm adding this to my blog I think, ive done so much bike electrics before :lol:

yes, cheers, i know about RS and Farnell, but wondered if there were any Bike Specific places? save me digging through all the other stuff...

 

Just found this one, its States side but not an issue these days, looks good a bet.
