    Anyone know what the Rear Power harness connector type is?

    The Z900 has two locations for auxiliary power.  The front uses a very basic connector, but the one in the rear housing that was designed for the OEM USB charging port is a specific type of connector.

    Cutting it off is not an option, and I don't want to buy a $100 USB charger just to get the connector. 

    Has anyone ever bought the matching connector or know of one that will fit and lock in place securely?

    Thank you

    The top picture is the socket under the seat it plugs in to. (Image from the installation instructions)

    The bottom image is the part I don't want to spend $100 for just the connector.

    Thanks.

    Hi Broderp, I used the following connector that was advertised on Ebay here in the UK (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184497918351). What I did was remove the 2 pins, still attached to the wires and they only clip in place, from the bikes original connector and just refitted them into the new connector shell. Took about 5 minutes.
    You cant then make up the other end, of the connector, to what ever you want to power and connect. Its as good as the original connector. I did power up the original connector first so that I could mark which wire was +ve and which was -ve by using a multimeter, didn't want to get it wrong.

    Hope that helps.

    That sure does.  :821:   Finding those in the USA through normal channels (eBay, Amazon etc.) is proving to be a small challenge.   Most I see are from China, not sure Ilike the wait time for that. lol

    EDIT: Just bought 3 pairs, only two states over.   Awesome.  Can't wait to get these.

    How about contacting, no pun intended, these people

    "http://www.cycleterminal.com/mt-series-090.html"

    they look to be US based. Couldn't find an actual address but there is an email address buried in the text somewhere I saw. Regarding buying from China, my guess would be a few weeks for delivery.

    Thanks CeeJayTee.......I'll check it out.  I always budget for spares and waste, so I have not issues having spare parts lying around.   :028:
