Subject: waterproof wire connectors (18-22 gauge)
I am adding waterproof electrical connectors to lighting and colored LED light strips to my saddlebags and tourpak so I can remove them. When hunting for electrical connectors I discovered there are a gazillion different kinds and very challenging to figure out what I needed. The folks at mouser.com carry a number of brands and were very helpful to walk me through all the part numbers for 2 pin, 4 pin, and 6 pin waterproof connectors. I am sharing the parts and pricing for anyone else trying to do the same.

Electrical connectors: white part #s

All my connectors arrived in the mail and was surprised to open the box and all the connectors are white. Argh! Don't order off these parts till I figure out if mouser screwed up or the guy on the phone gave me the wrong part numbers for black connectors.

Ended up switching to Molex automotive connectors which are larger but are black and waterproof.
I'll be experimenting with a universal crimper since I'm not spending $350 for a crimper for a few connectors.
If anyone has figured out which crimper under $50 is the best for Molex connectors then please add to this thread.

I went through some of the same hassles when I was looking for connectors, I ended up going to the local auto store and radio shack to get connectors and also bought some dielectric grease to make sure the connectors are basically water proof and won't have any corrosion problems.

Look at Summit, I got some really nice 2 pin ones and used them on my Halo rings.
