Hi everybody,
I would like to replace the 2 L-shaped rubber hoods that cover the spade connectors on the clutch switch. Connection works fine, it is just the hoods that are ready to disintegrate.
I tried multiple searches here and online to find a supplier, but no dice.
Anybody knows where I can purchase them?
Thanks in advance!

Thanks everybody for your replys/suggestions.
Yes, these hoods are quite small, much, much smaller than spark plugs boots.
Still looking, but in the meantime I will wrap them in electrical tape as a temporary fix.

Yes, great book and, yes, that's the plan. I will take some time this winter to remove fairing, tank, seat, side covers and go over the wiring addressing a few issues. Maybe even upgrade steering head bearings while I am at it...

Yes, terminology can definitely be tricky!
Thanks for the tip on the specific crimp tool, I had no idea.
I know exactly what you mean when it comes to "I will just tidy up things a bit under the seat..." and end up with a non-runner in boxes! I had a few Triumphs from Meridien when I lived back in Milan and definitely went into them way too deep!
With this GL I seem to have lucked out, and will think carefully before picking up tools to fix things that do not need to be fixed!!
