About Kiwi Connectors

Yamaha RG front harness Dataspares.com

Kiwi Connectors is based in New Zealand. Owned and run by Andrew Smith who has spent many years working with motorsport data logging and engine management systems in the UK and Europe. After working with touring cars and World Superbike in the 90's he found himself in 2000 supporting Renault UK with the Clio and FR2000 one make racing championships, and Crescent Suzuki in British Superbike.

During the 2002 season he was asked  to supply and tune Motec engine management systems for the Honda World Supersport ( 600cc ) team. Supplying the ECU was easy,  but integrating it into the racing motorcycle was not. Initally Honda UK supplied brand new wiring harnesses to take the connectors off, but this was not a long term solution. Andrew had to find a way of sourcing the connector housings and terminals.  After much research and trial and error, a small number of contacts were found who could supply not only OEM Honda, but Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki connectors. Many of these are also used in the car industry and by European motorbike manufacturers such as MV and Ducati.

In 2003 the UK business was supplying Honda UK and Crescent with data loggers and engine management systems. This led to expanding the business of building wiring harnesses for bikes. By 2005 / 06 Andrew and his team were suppling most the British Superbike  / Supersport  paddock with ECUs, dashes, sensors and wiring looms. The combination of Motec ECUs, Aim dashes, KA Sensors and Dataspares components complimented each other.

Please note that Kiwi Connectors only supply genuine Orignial Equipment Manufacturer connectors, from the same plants in Japan that supply Honda / Suzuki / Toyota / Kawasaki / Nissan / Yamaha. There are no cheap copies on this web site !

In 2013 the business moved to New Zealand.   The same quality of supply is still  here, supplying small quantities of connectors for hobbyists to larger quantities for professional wiring harness constructors.
