Who makes these taillight connectors?

Anyone know who makes the OEM taillight connectors used on the Kawai Versys wiring harness? I've been searching the internet for a set of male/female connectors like this but can't find any yet. Should be easy to get if I can figure out the manufaturer. They usualy all have online catalogs. I've spent the last couple days looking and haven't found them yet. I've got a 2010 model and I'm not sure if the 06-09's are the same so I attached some pics. It's a 3 position slightly oval connector. I don't see any marking on it to help identify it.

You might email Jim Davis at "easternbeaver.com" and ask him. His website is a motorcycle electronic candy store.

Connector identified

Fianally got arround to emailing Jim Davis at Eastern Beaver and got a response that night.

In case anyone else decides to try and connect to this it is a Sumitomo 3P090WP-MT. He said he can get them and it sounds like he will add them to his site. I wanted it to wire in my brake light modulator (Back Off) a little more factory style and to trigger the relay from my Fuzeblock without messing with the factory wires at all. I've just got all the connectors popped out of the factory connectorys and taped to the other wires for now while I tried to find the connector.

He is starting to sell a new brake light modulator "SupraBrake" which seems pretty high tech and I think he is adding a plug and play for the Versys.

He also has 2 Pole .090 WP MT Connector 'Special D' connectors which are a factory fit to make a jumper for PAIR valve removal so you don't have to use a paper clip and tape. Just seems nice to do it like the factory would.

How did you popped out the pins out of connector? Where can I find a pin like that, I want to extend the wire and put a new pin.
Did you find the connector to buy?

Thx

Jim Davis has other sanitary looking and well sealed connectors also with as many contacts as you might need. I ordered some 3 contact connectors to add portable temporary connectors for LCD tail/brake/turn lights I have mounted on the rear of my Pelican cases. They add a very professional look.

connecter

You can get the pins out with a very small micro regular screwdriver (jewlers screwdriver for eye glasses, watches, etc). I used a 3/64" one. You just carefully poke it down inside the open connector and there is a tiny plastic tab that you push past and it will realease the pin and you can just lightly pull it out by pulling on gently on the wire from the back side of the connector.

Aleeop is correct. Jim Davis at Eastern Beaver (no it's not a porn site) has them and about any other connector used on most bikes. Scroll down to the 3 pin connectors and you will see the ones used on the 2010 tail light connectors. He also sells good quality crimpers for the pins used on this syle connector and just about anything else you could use for wiring. Ordered a bunch of stuff just to stock up my toolbox and have had a couple of my buddies wanting me to help them already.

Connectors

If you remove or block your PAIR valve he also carries the factory connector for this too. Just connect a loop on it and your good to go.

2 Pole .090 WP MT Connector 'Special D'.

Fits wires from .5mm - 1.25mm (22 - 16 AWG).

Female housing with inner seal. Seals on each wire.

2P090WP-MT-SPD Connector

It's the one right above the other one and you only need to order the male side (he sells them seperate).
