Part: 3 Terminal Wiring Harness Electrical Connector for Honda CB175 / CB200 / CB350 / CB360 / CB450 / CB550 / CB750
Why You Need This: With age, comes decay, which is especially true with plastic components on your vintage Honda motorcycle, whether it be a CB350, CL450 or even a CB750. The wiring harness is already a gremlin prone system in your Honda CB or Scrambler and the multi-pin plastic terminal connectors are no exception. We have seen them crumble apart, have big chunks broken off, missing the locking clip or even packed full of corrosion that the inner terminals are dust (we chased an electrical gremlin for weeks in a CB360 in this exact situation). Do yourself a favor and replace any plastic wiring harness connector that is less than pristine. Our high quality wiring harness connectors are made in Japan and are what you need to make your wiring harness like new again. Sold individually as a package of connector with terminals. Additionally, we toss in an extra male an female terminal because we know sometimes that you screw one up when installing and you will need it. As always Common Motor has got your back.
This pack includes:
- Male plastic 3 terminal housing x 1
- Female plastic 3 terminal housing x 1
- Brass male spade terminal x 4
- Brass female spade terminal x 4
Make sure to assemble the terminals correctly by using electrical terminal crimping tool for a clean and seamless installation.
Additionally to the bullet style terminals
that make up the majority of the wiring harness on your vintage Honda (as well as many other vintage Japanese motorcycles from the era) connections are available too, as well as 4 terminal
and 6 terminal
wiring harness connectors. Or you can just go all in and get our complete electrical wiring repair kit
and have everything in one go.
Buy the electrical terminal crimp tool
... yes you will need it
to properly install the spade terminal connectors. The connectors are crimped in three stages: 1) The inner part of the terminal crimps around the wire, 2) The outer crimp goes around the wire insulation, 3) give the inner crimp a second squeeze with the end of the crimp tool to ensure a solid connection. We also like to solder all connections too so that they are permanent. The suggested wire size for these terminals is 16 gauge. Once the terminals are installed on the wires then install them in the plastic housing. There is a barb on the terminals that corresponds to a notch in each plastic housing; press the terminals into the back side of each housing until you feel them lock in place. Male terminals will be installed in the female plastic housing and vice a versa for the female terminals and male housing. Do note once installed they are very difficult to remove.
