Rehabbing my original wiring harness..
« on: July 10, 2019, 10:15:13 am »
Does anyone sell a similar non-adhesive wiring harness wrap that is as nice as the oem?

I used this on my most recent harness refurb:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y2KDQRN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It is more glossy than the original wrap, but the original may have been dulled by 40 years of exposure. No gooey/sticky adhesive to deal with, just plain wrap.

I used a wrap or two of this at the ends to hold it in place:

Has it held up ok for you in the Fl heat for a few years? The bike I will be using it on will be parked outside 24/7 in the CA heat.I have tried using just adhesive electrical tape but it will lose it's stickiness after a while and begin unraveling.
That factory tape is nice,and the way they wrap it.. real tough to match  ;)

So far so good. I've used standard electrical tape in the past and the sticky goo it leaves behind is a mess. The wrap I linked to above worked really well and does not have any sticky adhesive to deal with. Had to do some soul searching to spend nine dollars on a roll of tape, but I'm glad I did. The second link is a silicone tape that actually fuses to itself and also seems to be holding up better than plain electrical tape for terminating the ends of the wrap.
