I'm working with a vendor at the moment but this is what I've got so far.....
I went back to V.C. and found the majority of there stuff is blade based connections, early yamaha style.
They did have a honda stator connection with the pins, and see pic's below:arrow: :arrow: :arrow:
The molex style shown on e-bay look like a 50/50 shot in the dark.

I can crimp with V.C. crimper, notice the extra wings that fit the honda style plastic connector.
Would need to modify these...


They donn't allow a double crimp of the insulation, to small, :S
see the yam double gnd connection in the last pic, nice & clean.



So I'm learning again HERE and will share the answer/knowledge as in happens...:Buds

DEET should be able to assist you as he reproduces complete wiring harnesses.

I said I would share the info. Here it is...
1 & 2 are OE yamaha, vintage 1978
3 & 4 were supplied by Deet
5 & 6 were supplied by Mar Vac electronics, e=bay molex connectors
still waiting on VC to see what they come up with.
I am of the opinion that if you need to replace one, you need to do both. WHY? Because the terminals all have design specific features that fit the block connectors shown. That said, you may want to replace all wires to...
HAPPY NEW YEAR ENDURO FANS !!!!

You make a good point about "matching". I have been able to replace the round pins in some connectors with standard "molex" round pins of the right diameter.

When I installed my Powerdynamo on my monoshock DT175, I wanted to make it "plug and play" without any damage or changes to the OEM harness. I just remembered Yambits had the square plastic 4 round pin connector that turned out to be identical to the OEM Yamaha part.

A little late... but maybe better late than never? ;)

Mark, Just read your post & looked @ yambits offering.
The 4 & 6 pin kits they offer look to be identical to Deet's stuff.
I would need to build block 3 up to see if it's 100% compatable with block #2 when snapped togeather. It has free play in the depth without terminals applied. blocks 3 & 4 have no freeply when snapped togeather.
I can tell you that block #1 does not snap into block #4, you would be relying on the pins to do all of the work, not good.

The 4 pin connector half I used on the Powerdynamo harness mated perfectly with the OEM connector half on the Yamaha wiring harness. I don't know about the 6 pin.

And yes, the plastic blocks do vary and often even similar ones won't mate... I tried a couple different ones before I found the one on Yambits. :Ugh

Good to know DEET has them too! I should have checked there first!

I have found that if the original plastic blocks are good just the metal pins can be found that work... I had some "molex" pins that were the right diameter and looked similar and they worked fine in an OEM block on another bike that had corroded pins I wanted to replace..
