I found a description here:

I didn't find any proper Molex connectors on RS's website, but that P/N found something on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Molex-1545PRT-.../dp/B0026GLVBI

Should I get one and ensure its the right plug before we proceed?

EDIT: I looked a bit more and I think we have the right connector type; the number given by Rob (1545) shows up on the PDF you linked to and the part I found available via Amazon, so I don't think its necessary for me to buy and try... can we get to ordering? Should I call/email your site since my kit is not an option (yet)?

Molex

MP - no worries on an "official" order at this point. Let me get the Molex connectors and pins. Digi-Key stocks all of it and we have an account with them. We are going to place a Digi-Key order for some PCBA parts so I'll tack on a few connectors and pins. They should get here next week so I'll make up a kit for you. We'll keep the cost the same as the TAPP Lite since the connector replaces the fuse holder, fuse and ring terminals. I'll let you know when it is complete and you can call in your order since there is no part number on the website.

What pigtail length do you want on the TAPP Lite? Since it is a special you might as well get exactly what you want.

Thanks in advance for the custom kit!

From the Molex connector up to the dash is only a few inches, and from the dash up to the Ram Surface mounted AquaBox (Medium-Wide on the way) is probably only another few inches, so... one foot should be plenty I would think. If we wanted some margin or error that could be bumped a bit - and I'll measure soon so I can offer you some specific numbers.

Sounds good. We have a few days until the connectors get here.

I had a look and one foot would probably do it, but we should add a bit for cable curves and a bit of slack so the dash can be raised before disconnecting. I could try 1.5' and give you some feedback on the length.

Sounds good. The connectors are due in tomorrow or Wednesday. Which pin is + (yellow & blue?) and which is negative (brown). I was thinking about just crimping the pins and letting you poke them into the housing but I might was well have the info in case we make more later on.

Brown is ground, but in my picture its not completely clear which wire is going to which side. The quote I copied above, AussieRob (reliable fella) said positive was on the pointy (top) end, and negative was on the flat (bottom) end.

Should I confirm?

The colors are correct and I'm 85% sure the brown is on the square end and the yellow is the pointy end or top of the house as I think of it!

Ta Dah!

Thanks Low594 - I was wondering if I should have left the pins out of the housing and have MP punch them in. I now feel confident that it's correct.

Hey - MP send me a message with your shipping address and we'll get this thing to you.

No problem! I'll be in line for one soon, I believe! I just noticed that you are in Silly Cone Valley, too!

Yup - here in the valley enjoying the great weather. Took my trusty '82 Shovelhead out for spin today. Can't believe I rode that thing every day. It shakes like a bulldog passing peach pits, shifts like it has bubble gum in the linkage and no windshield. I'm getting soft riding my Roadie Still love the sound of a shovel tho. Now you know where I get my kickname.

We'll get a post up here as soon as MP has had a chance to try this out. Stay tuned.

Just an FYI to everyone: I'll be gone all weekend (F-Sun) so it'll be next week before I can get to this.

But since this showed up I am anxious to get at it!

Your TAPP Lite should arrive today so you will be able to at least have all the parts together. Have a good weekend. Hope it's a riding one.
