De pinning

Has anyone done any de pinning of their terminals yet? I bought these terminal keys and tried a little removal on my old wire harness that came with the OEM rear lights. Took a few tries to figure it out. The terminals are very fragile and not very friendly when it comes to pulling the pins out. Just wondering if anyone had a good tip. I’m wanting to run my wires in my handle bars, but I’m a bit nervous of messing up a terminal. Worst cast I would just solder the wires, but I would rather not.

I guess I could just cut the wires and go the route. That could be my fall back if I mess up.

Did you buy a particular set of terminals or just what ever you could find?

Those are the plugs for the rear light harness. I’m looking for terminals for the throttle and handlebar wiring. Where did you find those? Maybe they have the ones I would need.

I believe I saw the plugs you’re looking for at the same website. Digikey.com

If I was to make any recommendations it would be to get a good set of pin tools, and then take your time! Be patient and don't try to force things..

I haven't had to do any plug work on this bike, yet, But have worked on some pretty expensive main engine harnesses. When I was learning, the guy teaching me told me, and I am quoting verbatim, "If you have to push on a pin tool harder than your woman's button, or pull on a wire harder than her pacifier, you will regret it almost as much." didn't take me long to figure out what he meant..

I figured that out after the first couple. You have to find that sweet spot. You’ll know when you got it. It will release once you find it.

Wait, are we talking about bikes still? Haha

For the price vs. hassle, I think I'd just order new housings pins/sockets and re-make a clean, custom harness. Those housings are fragile and seem more like a one-time deal. The first time you use them, the sockets seem to snap in nicely, but if you take them out and put them back in, they don't seem to be as tight.
The company that makes the Triumph plugs is JST, and they're the JWPF series. They seem to have the full line at Digi-Key.
