Joe Good question.

I wondered the same thing and had a look at some of the photos available showing the circuit boards of failed Ducati units. I suppose it is doable to salvage a male connector housing, but it appears as though leads on the connector housing make a 90 * bend where it is soldered onto the circuit board so I think the result would be really kludged. Plus, there is no insulation between the individual circuit contacts that exit the body of the connector housing.

Other posts declare $70-$80 shipping costs--kinda hokey. you have info on motorcycle shop you purchased your SH from? If so please email to
