SAE Type Cables In Guatemala

Evening chaps

Our POV camera runs off the power from the bike but our SAE connectors has a break in the cable and with movement it keeps turning off.

Anyone know if these are available in CA, been looking around but to no avail.

I cant ride ....so no one will know the difference .. and you already knew that

The fault is right in the connector so cut the connector and stuff the plug lose lose.

Gotta come up with another plan.

Try a marina, a truck repair place, or an electronics store.
Almost any town will have some place that sells electronic repair parts.
Don't say it is for a motorcycle because they won't bother looking and will just tell you "no lo tenemos".
Some auto parts places that sell trailer light setups might also have them.

Hye TeeVee Thanks for your offer, we have bodgied our existing cable today so it will work at least for a while but this morning we ordered one from Revzilla as we were getting a pinlock insert as well so hopefully all sorted.

We have hunted high and low here in Guatemala city.

Will be off the bike for another 4 weeks I would say, ended up with two complete breaks, one fracture by my spine and one fracture out under the armpit area ... got my moneies worth

How long are you in Nicaragua?, a catch up in order?

Heya Mike

Mate we went to model shops, truck spares, moto shops, radioshack, electrical suppliers both automotive and household, even dodgy looking shop with anything remotley electrical..... nada!!!

They all shook their heads gave a us a another piece of paper with another address and sent us somewhere else

So on that note we are now local in Guatemala city and I know of a heap of Heidenau tires here in Guatemala city.

The doctor said walking was good so .... I am great
