I am going to fit the ST2 smart turn and brake modules on the Himalayan. I hate cutting into wiring looms though and in the past, I have made up short wire connectors, male to female, and done breakouts and connections there. What manufacture of connectors does the Himalayan use and does anyone know where they can be obtained?

Sumitomo connectors from aliexpress, you can get them from ebay and amazon but they are asking stupid prices, Aliexpress will sell you 10 pair for less than a fiver. You will also be able to use "1 to 14 Way 6.3mm Pin Plug CONNECTOR Electrical Multi Terminal Block Wiring" If you type the exact phrase on ebay you will find them easy enough at the best price.

Thanks, are the Sumitomo connectors the same as the OEM ones used by R.E.? I want to use connectors to plug into the existing ones. I have connectors like the others you mentioned.

Yes they are a perfect fit, I think the full proper name for the component is 'Sumitomo MT090', on the bike you may find ones in different colours like red or blue but just ignore the colours, the white ones are just the same.
As for the 6.3mm block connectors make sure they have a little notch on the bottom (not perfectly rectangular) and are the 1 way type, the blocks allowed me to connect a harness direct into the ignition and the positive / negative poles of the battery without cutting or piling up loads of wires on the terminals , (had to cut into the ignition off course)
I noticed other types of connectors on the bike but had no reason to access them so to be honest I don't know if any of these components I mentioned will be suitable for your job anyway but it's good to know I suppose.

I'm sitting here with the stock connector and looking through Ali Express and none of the Sumitomo connectors seem to match. The MT and HM 090s are sealed connectors, but RE uses unsealed connectors for their turn signals.

The only place I've been able to find the correct connectors is Hitchcock's, but I'm loathe to pay $20+shipping for 4 pieces of plastic...

Edit: Found them on Eastern Beaver. They're Yazaki 090s https://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/Elec__Products/Connectors/YZ090/yz090.html

Found them even cheaper on Mouser:
Male https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/272-71231520
Terminal https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/272-71161181

Female https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/272-71221520
Terminal https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/272-71141171

10 male ends with 40 terminals was $10 shipped with economy shipping, 7-10 days.

Thanks, Mortifine, I will wait to see if the sealed Sumitumos fit OK with the non-sealed RE ones. May be OK to leave out the little rubber seals. I'm in no hurry but it is good to have your information if not.
