Electrical Connector help needed please

Hi Guys

I need to buy the connectors that the Bobber uses to connect its rear lights with for my rear end upgrade. I could cut the old ones and splice but would rather not.
Anyone selling a stop/tail light and or number plate light in the UK?

Pics attached.

Why don’t you want to solder the wires? Better connection

I want to keep the connections on the bike and the exiting rear cluster original, so that it can be reverse fitted in the future.

An easier option might be to splice and solder yours, and buy a new OEM rear harness as a spare, so you're covered if ever you want to go back to stock?

I did look at a short fender harness for mine, to run a pair of multi-function brake/running/indicators for a tail-tidy I was considering. I can't remember exactly but I was quoted something like £45 and so I don't think the long stock one would be that much more.

Thanks but the problem with that idea is that there is only about a 1/4 of the connector sticking out of the fender - no wire at all, so I would have to remove the rear fender to be able to do a splice.
