Don’t know about other brands as I’ve only used these but they worked well.

Might get some but it pains to throw away stuff I've bought. I found with the cheap ebay stuff that by the time the solder had melted the rest of the thing had melted. Maybe the wrong solder used or maybe me, who knows?

Try using a lower temperature, will take a bit longer but the lower heat shouldn’t destroy the outer case.

Yes I did fit it. It was mega easy Tbf. I used those solderless crimp type connectors with heat shrink tubing. You can also use the ones with the solder in that melt as another option. 
What I do, is retain the oem connector by snipping the wires with plenty of cable. That way also if you ever wanted to stick the original pieces back on you can just snip out your connector and rejoin again with fresh connectors. 

Whatever you decide ensure the oem plug fits through any of the holes they need to on the tail tidy. If they do no issue, but if it’s a squeeze pass the wires through before crimping/solder etc. 

Hopefully that makes sense. What you do have is a mass of cable left over as the cables run a good foot plus further along the bike into the rear bracket before. I just wrapped them up neat under the seat in case I ever swapped back to it. You could cut it off if you chose of course. 

i have been on the case and got the tail off just before dark today, the oem number plate light i have had to chop off and it has a blue and white or light blue set of wires any idea which one is earth?

Hi Jim 

Off top of my head I can’t recall but when home can take pics possibly. 

However I’m pretty sure it’s just the two wires on the led lamp so one in, one out, so it doesn’t matter which one you attach to the other as the current just flows through it either way and the led lamp is just part of the circuit.

Hi mate,

yeah that makes sense, what threw me off is the new rear plate lamp from jtech has a live and a earth so i thought it was going to matter.

you will have to forgive me i have never really done any wiring before and the other question i have is when i insert the wires through the bullet connecters do i put enough bare wire through so it can physically touch the bullet end of the opposite cable?

does that make sense 

pratty question i know but i wont know until i know, LOL

Think I’m following you Jim 

The cable wire needs bare wire in contact with the connector. So long as the crimp piece (male) is crimped on the bare wire, the metal part carries current. The other connector (female) piece crimps in the same manner, and once they are pushed together the current goes through. 

Probably a bad description but have a google on you tube about crimping bullet connectors to put some images to my appalling description 😅

Actually LED's are polarity conscious so does matter which way around they are connected. Easy to forget that with a lifetime of using traditional bulbs.

In that case well done on the 50/50 guess Jim. I was lucky too in that case 😅

I guess it's possible that the light unit has some diodes and is wired in such a way that makes it not matter - or as you say you were just lucky!
