Good call there Fragman; I use a product called Nano-tech on the marine stuff, it bonds to the surface and saves all sorts of corrosion problems. i did notice with these connectors that it actually clamps down on the bare wire, a little lube will probably do it good.

The speedo looks fine wildbill, but the mil guage looks like a shyte version of this face :(.

I'm gonna gong the mil guage on my one and install a proper oil gauge & fit the
mil lights into the casquette using these wee buggers to get 'er right fer me. ;)
Nothing better than a nice putt on an RE.
It's a serene way to travel at an unhurried pace.

yeah I could only get a black face of this speedometer off the supplier. I would have preferred white BUT I was lured in by the fact that this unit has wired in left and right indicators and high beam......so settled for the black regardless.
as to the white smiley face ;D not sure how i'd go moving it about as the ABS is hooked in there too
best thing though I like about this gps speedo say from scratch - once the ignition is turned on ( you can see the gps receiver on the handlebar mount) it does a quick count up on the odometer 1/2/3 and so on and locks on to the satellite within say 20 seconds and then the odo comes on and your ready to roll
after that anytime you turn it on its almost instant. speedo needle is rock steady at all speeds too.
