    Question 4-Way Female Bullet Connector - Group Buy?

    All -

    I needed some 4 way connectors and I inquired with the Chinese manufacturer and the minimum order quantity is 1000 pieces for $80 shipped to me. I have absolutely no need for that many connectors and I was wondering how many people here on the board would want some and how many. Also how much $ per lot of 10 would you be willing to pay?

    I may end up buying the lot of 1000 and then offer them on eBay in groups of 10-20 for those people that are restoring their motorcycle and need these style connectors.

    Thoughts?

    You can put me down for 25 ea for $10.00 assuming this covers your shipping costs etc. This is the price for a 3 way connector at Vintage Connectors which seems to be about the same in material volume etc. If I'm off-base, just tell me.

    I think that sounds fair - just trying to gauge interest and price point for possible sales on eBay.

    Do you think lots of 10 or 20 make sense? Shipping should only be about $1.50 per order 10/20/25 its all the same.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Lots of 10 & 20 make a lot of sense. Even if you just stick with 10, its easy enough to order 2 sets and keep shipping cost the same.

    Keep in mind the standard for the CB 350's is the 3.5 mm bullet.

    Most of what is out there is the 4 mm size.

    The 4 mm makes a very loose connection that you have to crimp down but doesn't truly have proper contact.

    Are you getting the insulators with these? Will you need a special crimp die to use these? To solve this problem on my 450 harness build, two wires were crimpted into a single male bullet connector and then used two double females on each wire. Honda used wire pigtails like this to make year to year changes to the wiring.

    Maybe you'd be better off just buying the amount you need?
    I think you'd struggle to unload the bulk of them, particularly if they don't have the insulator.
    These are the Vintage Connection 4mm ones. I always use these and if necessary just replace the male opposite with a 4mm as well.
