I have an 06 Softail standard and changing out handlebars. On the bike end of the wires there are two 6 wire plugs one gray and one dark but look almost identical, how do you remove the wires so you can pull them from bars

Thats not the style plug I have, these have orage ends where it plugs in with rubber gasket then the main body of plug. I just can't see any obvious way to get plug apart.

What Sammy said....

Could be a Deutsch, Packard, Multilock, etc....

Handlebar cable connectors on my '06 FLHTI are 12 place Deutsch Connectors. Black for the right and gray for the left. On a softail they may have used a smaller connector.

In the Softail Electrical Service Manual for your year it should have a page with a list of locations and types of connectors on your bike. I have the '03 version but it's at home right now I'm at work.

Ride safe

Edit: I bought a downloadable PDF version of my Service Manuals off ebay. Keep a copy on my iPhone, ipad, and Mac. Not really that expensive.

If it's Delphi, you slightly bend back the external latches.
If it's Deutsch, you depress the external latches on the housing while rocking the pin and socket housings.

So it's already unplugged and now you need to "de-pin" the connector?

Search for free Harley service manual downloads (or you could buy the real thing from a dealer or flea market). In the manual, there are steps and tools listed which are necessary to get the wires (and pins) out of the plastic block.
Hope that helps.

That's a six place Deutsch connector. How do I know? I looked it up in my '03 Softail Electrical Service Manual. You have one located under the tank on the right side and one on the left. They probably did not change the type of connector since '03. But I have been know to be wrong and step on my dick occasionally. Those connectors come in different pin configurations; 4, 6, or 12 but they all come apart the same exact way. The illustrations below are showing a 12 pin Deutsch but it's the same exact thing for a six pin Deutsch. Funny I pronounce that "Doosh" as in "Doosh bag". Is that even right?

I'm putting up these images from the manual. Hopefully this will help you until you can drag yourself to eBay and buy one. LOL... Hope your project goes off without any major glitches or trips to the machine shop...

Moderators: If the Harley Police (pronounced PO as in Moe) come knocking and threatening let me know and I'll delete those images. Thanks.

Hey Fletch, you don't need the special harley tool just a pin or end of a paperclip may work in unlatching the pins from the sockets. Do not throw away any plugs that may be in unused sockets as these help with moisture prevention.

Hope this helped.

Ride safe

Seriously? Have never heard anyone in the United States of New York pronounce it like that. If they did they'd get a "WTF?" .

Sounds like German currency BC.

Nah... You're fuckin' with me right? Doytch... The idea! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)

Not kidding. It means "German" in German. Phonetically, it is pronounced doytch.
The money in Germany is now the Euro, but it had previously been the Deutschmark (German Mark).


Deutsche (with an e on the end of it) is the feminine adjectival form for Deutsch. (Same word, just a variation on it)
The pronunciation of Deutsche can be heard here.



So, if you just remove the lifted e at the end of Deutsche, it sounds like doytch.

Popularity doesn't make it correct. Be a trend setter, Ordy. Say it right. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)
