    True but this bike is so worked and a strange mid year model. It has both the crank pickup AND a traditional nose cone cam sensor. The bike is using a Crane set up in the nose cone. Other things are that it is a RT frame, S&S heads and Sachs built motor. Speaking of that, I took it out yesterday for it's second shake down run (jetting the carb). Slow rolled the throttle and short shiffted gears 1 - 4. I wacked 4 hit redline whacked 5 and the tire lit up and the bike started stepping out to the side. Scared the living bejesus out of me. Now I know. it is interesting if it doesn't kill me.

    Well now that this thread has been revived, and I won't get yelled at for bringing back a 7 year old thread (hahaha). Does anyone know what's involved in replacing the cam sensor with the "Harley" one? The problem I'm having is that the new ones come with no connector. I'm having the hardest time trying to find a new jst connector. So I was able to remove my factory one today with a little help from my trusty pick, but all the ones I see online look to have much bigger terminals. Can anyone help me out or verify. I'd rather not splice if possible.

    Side note: contacted Curtis and he said he's having trouble getting new ones at the moment.

    You can cut the connector off the old one and splice it onto the new cable. That is the route I would go if you want to get up and running. Otherwise order new JST connector and pins from Curtis and just put it on yourself. You can even cut and splice old one then once you get the connector from Curtis cut the splice off and install the new connector later.

    I don't have any luck de-pinning the JST connectors for reuse.

    I suggested that the other night.
    Here's the part numbers you need, call JST and ask them to send you some samples

    Like I said above, I have already removed the connector and I'd rather not splice due to complications down the road. All I'm asking is how the Harley one fits. Is it a direct re-pin, or do I have to splice?

    Call Jeff at Dead One Customs, he sells them with the JST connector on them.
