  • Adapter plug salvagable?

    After a couple weeks out I came home and dug into the parts to get my bike more where I want it. One of the first things to go was/is the rear directionals but here's the problem. The directionals I'm replacing are a single wire and the new ones I'm putting in are 2 wire. When the previous owner put in the directionals they pulled the wire straight out of the plug (pics below). Now my question is can I salvage the plug and make it work somehow or do I have to buy 2 new ones?

    I would say if the wires have the pins on them that lock into the plug it should be fine, as long as the old wires were removed without damaging the internal of the plug were the pins lock.

      The metal inside the adapter where the wire would hook up to is gone as well. It's an empty shell on that side.

        What I meant was the new wires if they have the pins on them should fit right into the plug if it wasn't damaged by whomever removed the pins and wires before. If the old was removed right then the new wire and pins should lock in no problem.

          With luck what you buy will have a new plug. now the plastic plug itself is mostly still good unless they got real clutsy takin out the original wire. You should be able to source the lttle metal connectors and parts in yur service book probably needs the right clamping tool to put them on wire.
