Default How to remove electrical connector

I am in the process of pulling my signal light wires up through the bars to install them on the forks. How do you remove the big 8 wire plastic connectors? I have found out how from others here to do the little 3 wire ones, (haven't succeeded yet), but I can't find instructions on how to take of the big ones.

I don't thing you need to disconnect the big ones, the signals are only the 3 wire plugs... Sounds like you've done all you need to there bud!

Molex connector poking tool.
The 06 handlebar controls used Deutsch.
In 07 they went to Molex.

Very simple to remove the wires. (pix follow)

First off you have a hook tool........

.
Insert the hook tool into one of the D shaped holes
and the point will aim at the other Dhole.

Above, use the tool to pull up about a quarter inch.
(you are pulling up the secondary lock)
.
Now, below I show a little T wrench I made up,
(for the primary lock)
using.032 stainless steel wire.......

Now, below, this is where you wanna poke your tool.
Doesn't take much, you don't need to bend anything.
Just push your tool in gently,
and pull it out the back (the wire).

All of the high performance fittings that are used these days are marked.

Whether they be AMP, Deutsch, or Molex (pictured below).

..........they are all marked...........................................

Dene, as to finding instructions, look in the stickies.

Actually Dutch, I figured while I got it apart I'd continue on past the sig lite install and prep it for the arrival of the new drag bars so those big 8 wire ones will have to be taken apart so the wires can be threaded out through the old bars also. Can't see any little tabs on that at all.

I'll fly at it shortly, never looked in the stickies.
Do you recommend replacing the connectors with new ones and are they HD specific or will most parts stores be able to get them?

You can get the connectors through the dealership or order online at Zanotti, Lakeshore, etc. Also, NAMZ has them online ... http://namzcustomcycleproducts.com/p...ctors.html#top

Some online or local indy shops who are distributors dealing in V-Twin will be able to get them ... you used to be able to see the electrical connectors in the V-Twin Mfg catalog and at pages 288 - 291 (in the 2010 catalog disc)

Just got done running my wires through new T-bars on my bike a month or so ago. There is no need to replace the connectors unless you damage them somehow. I actually used a small pair of needle nose pliers to grab the two D-shape holes and pull up the lock. Then I used a really small flat head screwdriver (like for a computer) to depress the little internal latches for each individual wire end. Make sure you draw yourself a color-coded wiring diagram before you start pulling them apart just to have as a reference for yourself. It took me several tries to make sure I put them back together correctly, but once I cracked the code, it was much easier.
