old Yamaha connectors

Been Around the Block
Would anyone happen to know where to get the old Yamaha 3 pin connector?
Would anyone know what tool is used to remove these old Yamaha pin connectors?

I would be tempted to pull the pins using a tiny screwdriver - the sort you use to repair eyeglasses - and then replace that old connector with a shiny new one from VintageConnections.com or Easternbeaver.com
 
Just cut it off and replace it. My local auto shop sells these ones in 4 / 6 / 8 pin set-ups for only a few $$$

I need to change the connector on a newer left side control to fit the harness connection.
I have access to the six pin connectors but not the three pin.
I have the extraction tools for the typical spade type but not these
round pin type. I'm thinking they might use something different

They can supply what you need. I've purchased them for my Honda and Yamahas, reasonably priced for getting oem spec's equpiment
 
Seriously, just cut them off an crimp a new one on. If you can only get a 4 spade then just leave one blank.

The pin extractor looks very similar to a wire wrapping tool. Basically it's just a small diameter tube that fits over pins to push the locking bits. You can probably find small diameter brass tube to fit at local model shop

Now the real challenge is to find a local model shop ;)
 
Yep, there are a couple of different 'tubes' on them.
They were used extensively at MMI but they break pretty easy though
I don't bother with the bought ones and make my own extractors.
I think that if you bought one you would treat it a bit better than the students did plus spend a little time trying NOT to break stuff ;)
 
cycleterminal.com is another good source. If they don't have it, shoot them an email and they can point you in the right direction.
