    Default Better options than black cable ties and suggestions for loom/cober

    Recently bought a complete bobber. Custom frame custom forks etc but using a 2004 Yamaha Road Star 1700 motor and wiring harness. Obviously being a bare-bones driver there's some wires I don't need but with the stock molex style connectors and extreme number of wires in the harness it's hard to tuck or hide these. On a stock Roadstar I would have the option of using the side covers which is kind of what they were there for lol. On a bare frame I have clumps of wires and connectors just kind of sitting there. Aside from black zip ties are there other nicer looking ways of managing cables as well as individual wires? Any wire loom or sheath that comes in pretty large sizes to help cover the connectors?

    I imagine with the bulk of this harness I may have to fabricate a panel to simply contain/hide....just looking for input from others before I make more work for myself .m

    If your not looking to make a cover or hide wiring in the frame sleeving can at least give it a uniform look while also hiding your pin connectors. It really depends on how far you want to go with this. If your really wanting to go down the rabbit hole, scrap everything unnecessary and tunnel through the frame or at least minimalize it enough to sleeve and hide along the backbone. Just my 0.02

    Lots of colors and patterns of braided sleeving and you can order up some pretty large stuff these days as well.

    I like to go the other way and show off the wires. Note the red tiewraps.


    But if you want to keep all the original harness padding either side of the connectors and taping or a sleeve over them is fast and not too nasty.

    They make stainless steel zip ties. For a cleaner look than just zip tying them up, make a hump in the zip tie to match the wire bundle then fasten it. Also there is the John Bull type of rubber tie. Not tried yet, but think I can duplicate out of an inner tube, or order from Brit suppliers. And dont forget the asphalt type loom in various sizes also.

    Aircraft cushion clamps can be had cheap via Ebay and are ideal for harness , hose and hard line support.
