I haven't tried these myself, but creeper really pimps those Deutsch connectors:

I will use those when I need to replace connectors. Just cut off both the old connectors and replace with the new connector of your choosing.
You are the man!! The "search king". The "King of Search". Take whatever title you like best but thank you. Those Deutsch connectors really look the goods and maybe I'll just convert everything I need to those. Must be good being waterproof too.

Never seen the EXC brake switch but the issue (for me) was the connector on the SXC (LC4) wiring loom at the "front end" under the headlight. There is a metal plate where all the connectors snap into (on each side). I assume the 640Adv is the same.
The front brake light switch plugs into the wiring loom between the rhs radiator and the main frame spine on my 640A. The EXC connects similar to your LC4 by the sounds of it behind the headlight mask.

My guess is the EXC uses the same connector and it'll just plug right into the connector on the LC4 harness.
Yes for the brake light switch but I'll have to check for the indicator (flasher?) switch. It is slightly a moot point for me though because the EXC cable length from the indicator switch to the plug is too short for the 640A. Even if the plug is the same I would have to extend the wires by splicing a few inches of extra wires between the switch and plug. Then when the switch goes back on the EXC I would have to coil up excess cable length and things get messy for quick fault finding in an enduro if I have problems.

Thanks for your responses though. This forum rocks!!
