Went to the local Harley dealer to buy the crimping tool for the small electrical connectors, he said about $125 and I said Huh! Anyone out there have a loaner or know something that will work, looking for the crimp tool which fastens the metal clip to the wiring. Thanks.

I have always used the extra teeth that are in the throat of my needle nose pliers. With a little extra manipulation, you can achieve the same effect.

One hint - on the terminals, there is a part (2 tabs) that is designed to crimp to the insulation (for strain relief), then a part that crimps to the wires.

crimping tool

Don't know all the electrical terminology, is that the name of the connectors
which are used on the ends of turn signals and such, those are the ones I need the tool for. Thanks.

If you have a 2007 or later your bike has Molex connectors on it no Deutch.

If I remember right turn signals are not on Deutch or Molex connectors... Turn signal controls are...
