need help with speed senor

hi need help with the speed sensor bought a used 96 CBR900RR and the speed sensor wiring was cut and messed up. I am looking to just rewire the sensor. I am wondering if any one has done this what female terminals they used.

Re: need help with speed senor

Define cut and messed up.... Pics would be helpful too. If there is enough wire from the sensor to the other side of the pigtail you could solder it back together. The part runs about $125(ish) new usually with the wires attached w/connector at the end. This would be the best fix, but if money is tight provide some pics and I will lead you the best I can on how to repair it. (Used to work on aircraft electrical systems)

It's a 3 pin weather pack connector to keep water out. I'd prefer to keep it removable but its not essential. So get a new weather proof connector or if you can't find one you could fit it with basic bullet clips and insulate with silicon grease. Or solder.

I just wanted to see if it could be fixed before I went the route of buying a new one. and by cut and messed up I mean it looks like the wires where cut in multiple spots and some other spots look like they where chewed on by a mouse or something of that nature. I will try to get some pics tomorrow having a hard time finding my camera,

Re: need help with speed senor

I would say as long as there are sufficient leads off of the sensor itself, trim all the wires equal, solder in new wires (just go to the autostore and gauge match the wire), shrink wrap the repairs with wire heat-shrink. As long as there is enough lead from each wire on the connector, do the same thing to it. Just trim out the wires in-between so that the entire assembly is all the same length. In order to make it look better, sleeve the entire outfit once you are done. If you do not have enough wire on each side you can probably still repair it, but it will not be reliable.

Glad I could help Just let me know how it turns out. If the soldering is a bit much for you, but soldering for splicing, just remember to still heat shrink the repairs and sleeve the whole thing to make it look better!

Edit: Also stagger your splices! You do not want them all to line up as this will increase wear and make a biiiiig bulge in the area.
