    I need just the plug with the wires for a 1981 XS650SH. I need the one you see in the picture not the wiring harness one.

    Thanks.

    No one have this plug. I guess I will have to cut the harness plug.

    Those connectors are like two and half bucks new Bill.
    Have a look here at Vintage Connections.
    EDIT for anyone reading this thread in the future: The link above is the wrong connector. This is the correct one.

    Unless it is very important to you to have an exact original connector you should be good going with the Vintage Connectors ones. Without looking at the plugs on my 1982 can't say if they do have the exact style.

    One thing to keep in mind is often the plastic housings can get brittle with age and the contacts also get corroded. And don't forget we are talking 40 year old parts. Even if they look good there can be corrosion where the terminals are crimped to the wires.

    I used that connector I linked to on my '80. It's an exact match. The quality is top notch too.

    My bad. Forgot they were round pins.

    All I need is the connector with the wires. Can you cut off? How much for just the connector?

    The correct one is here. It's 7 bucks though.

    I am not using the taillight. I have an Omar’s tail light. I just did not want to cut the connector from the wiring harness off to install another connector. I only need the blue, yellow and black wires.

    Still not a bad price with the terminals included. And if it prevents one breakdown or saves from getting rear ended or a traffic ticket even someone as tight with the money as I am it would be a bargain!

    Is that the same one or will I need to install both?

    I bought one to pigtail in a strobe brake without changing the existing wiring. They plug right into the bikes existing connector.
