Cable holders

There are six plastic cable holders that carry the right headlight & horn wires across the top of the radiator to primary loom, I purchased a set from W&N that are brittle and break apart, must have ordered them 2 years ago in anticipation of this day of assembly. Does anyone know a vender who has the softer plastic variety?

Complain to W&N.  They will likely send you another batch N/C.  Even explaining that you bought them 2 years ago shouldn't be an issue if they are brittle.  Customer satisfaction is important to them.

 

Personally, I'd prefer the OE holders vs. a work-around.  And make sure you order the right size.  I think there are 2 sizes.  Behind the rad are the shorter ones, IIRC.

I recently got some from W&N and found that there were 3 sizes in the bag.  They worked correctly, but I found that if your sheet metal holes are the least bit undersized (from painting), they can be hard to get in, and will be damaged if you have to remove to add that last wire which you forgot the first time.    2 years ain't very long either...  If I were doing it again, I'd get standard cable holders with a metal core and bolt them in place

For attachment to sheet metal, I use these.  Sorry they are not color coordinated (black).  Don't know where they are available, I bought a sack full at a local electronics store that is no longer around.

In addition to the anchor, they have a release tab to reopen them for future additions.
