    Storage Box Solenoid Lock Electrical Connector REPAIR

    Working on my Trophy recently I noticed the wires that go into the connector
    of the Locking Solenoid for the Storage Box connector were frayed.
    After a little "wobble" they detached completely :



    Every time the Fairing is removed, the Storage Box needs to come out, and although
    I usually unplug the wiring socket, the repetitiveness of doing so puts strain on the wires,
    especially as the little catch that has to be depressed to release it is awkward to get at.



    One solution is to remove the Solenoid completely and live with an "insecure" Storage Box.

    There are just 2 Torx screws to remove from underneath the Storage Box,
    and the Solenoid assembly slides out as shown in the above Photo's.

    if anyone in the same situation wants to fix a similar problem,
    you will need a replacement Plug connector, and two new contact pins.

    I've identified these as the following parts :

    Plug Housing ( Identical apart from being white not black ! ) :
    TE Connectivity Part Number 174463-1
    RS Components ( UK ) Part Number 362-8998 ( 2 way Multilock 070 1-row plug housing ). £1.22 inc vat

    Contact Pins :
    TE Connectivity Part Number 175027-6
    RS Components ( UK ) 712-2188 ( Multilock 070 Contact 16AWG ) - Pack of 20. £3.26 +vat



    New wires can then be crimped onto the new Contact Pins
    which are inserted into the new Housing Plug, then the new wires
    connected to the original Trophy harness wires. ( Soldering is best. )

    I bought a few sets of these, so if anyone needs to do this repair just drop me
    a Private message and I can send you a set for the price they cost plus postage.

    The problem in the US is finding the particular connectors.  I've had a couple of pairs of the male/female connectors for the GPS wiring on order for over a month and still have no ship date.  When I have checked various places that sell that particular connector in the US they have never been in stock.

    They do not necessarily have to be OEM connectors, you can put any other connector, in fact I have other types of connectors that do not fail and are easy to remove.

    I have found the type of connector that I have several of them installed in the Trophy, it can be seen on the following web:

    This Topic is about replacing the OEM Connector - fitted to the Trophy Harness,
    so that it will match up with the connector fitted to the Solenoid wires,
    and not about changing both male and female connectors for a different type.

    In the U.S. I think "TE.com" and "Mouser" are able to supply these connectors,
    using the TE Connectivity Part Numbers quoted.

    Comments about the Heated Grips Shorting Link - located underneath the front storage box,
    unrelated and irrelevant to this Topic, have been removed and used to create a New Topic :
