Hi all,

I have a burnt out connector on the starter solenoid which is preventing me from riding - it's very frustrating.

Has anybody had this problem and (more importantly) do you know where I can purchase a new one?

It's a 4-way square connector.

Many thanks

Yes, that's the solenoid. 
It's the connector (that's not shown) that I need to replace.
The bike has broken down on me too many times now. I have already replaced the solenoid but the connector is proving difficult to locate.
Any ideas where I can buy one?
Many thanks

I've no idea sorry? It looks to be part of the wiring Harness, eBay for someone breaking a vz is probably your best bet or a motorcycle breakers.

Could not standard connectors be used with adequate heat shrink tubing or electrical tape etc???

You could remove the plastic plug part (providing the stock metal connectors are ok cleaned up?) fit them loose then pack the socket with polymorph to insulate them and create a new connector? just an idea instead of searching for a connector or wiring loom.

ps. I have been drinking Starter Solenoid Connector 230572241  so this could be complete nonsense  Starter Solenoid Connector 852880

Hello GJC,
I notice you have a Suzuki vz800 1977,, they didn't make the vz then so I assume it is a typo mate and you mean 1997 model vz800.
The wiring block on 1997 to 1998 vz should have 3 wire and the 1998 to 2004 vz should have 4 wires to the block,,,
1 or 2 small red wires, a yellow wire with a black tracer,,,,a black wire with white tracer,, 1997 to 1998 vz800 marauders in particular there is a known problem with this block melting/overheating the red wires and is connected to a problem with the charging system/wiring,,, so if you check the melted block mate in particular the red wires,, you may want to follow them back into the harness a little way and see what you find,, if this turns out to be the problem you will need to rectify the fault.
Hope this is of some help mate.

Hello Sim,
No mate it is not complete nonsense,, I have done the very thing myself a few times in various situation and it works a treat,,, filling the pug with hot glue has worked for me once or twice when I`ve been in a bind..
