    Connecting wires - regular wire crimp?

    I'm replacing my start stop switch on my SuperJet and the wiring harness for the red and brown wires was removed. Can I just use a standard electrical wire crimp (like the blue ones) or do I need something else? I'm hoping to take it out on the water tomorrow.

    If you want to ride today, you can use crimp connectors for short term. But you should as soon as possible make proper solder connections. Then coat with Liquid Electrical tape. Something like this - http://www.homedepot.com/p/Gardner-B...-400/100119178 Then put shrink tube over that.
    2, 1998 TS 770 L, restored and running great. (Except for the one with engine that SBT put the WRONG crankshaft bearing into and is now sitting as I collect repair parts)

    At the very least use the adhesive lined shrink connectors

    Ok thanks all. I'll pick up some of those connectors and replace with what I have now for the time being. I typically ride next to the boat ramp so it wouldn't be end of the world if it fails and I had to swim.
