$160 short

I have short in my wiring and the locol yamaha dealer tells me they can't resplice a wire into a male plug. Instead i have to get a whole new wiring harness. Does anybody know of any place on the internet that sells cheap wiring harnesses.

Or could i get a used harness or part from another year of warrior?

Re: $160 short

I don't know how to fix a short, the short is in a plug that goes into the cdi unit, and i don't know how to fix it myself or I would. The problem is they don't sell just the plug i have to get a whole new wiring harness.

Re: $160 short

If the short is definetly just in the plug, there probably isn't more than 4 or 5 wires going into each side of the plug. I would just cut the wires from both sides of the plug and use automotive bullet style plug connectors on each one, and just hook them up individually, just make sure you match the color coded wires as you do it, then wrap all the plugs together with electrical tape as a group to keep them from getting wet or pulling apart.I would also make sure you put the female half of the plugs on the stator side of the connections (the end that comes out of the engine case)so that if a wire somehow comes loose, the charged end of the wire doesn't short out against the frame and cook the stator. If you know exactly which wire is the problem at the plug, you could also just cut the single wire and use the bullet connector on that one only, leave the rest in the factory plug until they cause a problem.If the plug goes dirrectly into the CDI unit, you would have to find a used plug (possibly from a atv/mc salvage yard) and you could then cut and splice the wires. The plug might have been used on wiring harnesses for other atv's and motorcycles also, so a trip to a salvage yard might be worth the time.
