Turn Signal Connectors

I purchased a new set of turn signals for my 2009 versys and the new set of turn signals didn't come with any connectors on the wires.

I am having a hard time removing the "male" connectors off of the old turn signals to place on the new turn signals. Do I need to buy new connectors? If so, where can you purchase them?

wire cutters
heatshrink tubing
soldering iron
Seems to me that any other way will eventually fail or just look sloppy

Most electrical connections on the bike have a barb prong that locks the wire and connector into the plastic housing.

Most of the large size wires and connectors can be de-pinned (small fine wires are much harder to work with)

In your case you should be able to unplug the old turn signal, take it off the bike, then because you new turn signals only have bare wire, you will then need to snip off the old connector and join the old connector wires to to the new turn signals. Suggested method is solder the wire and user heat shrink tubing to protect the exposed joint from short circuiting.

If you are resourceful... you could try and find what kind of connector plug style is used, and buy the plastic housing and a few new connectors and crimp the new turn signal wire on - for that factory install!

When I changed my front turn signals, I used these:

I can solder but these are easier.
