Weatherproof your wiring with OptiMate

Most electrical accessories designed for use on/with motorcycles will get wet at some stage. Keeping that moisture out of the electrical circuitry is crucial - even a small amount can cause faults and even total failure.

One of the most vulnerable points of any circuit is where connections are made, yet many accessories, even those designed for use during winter months, like heated clothing, aren't routinely supplied with weatherproof connectors.
OptiMate's entire range of connectors and cables are weatherproof as standard. Compatible with the majority of accessories and add-ons currently available, they help to stop moisture causing problems and guard against any problems it might cause with the bike’s electrical system.
The range covers most of the connectors and leads needed to operate common accessories, like heated clothing, sat nav systems, smart phone chargers and battery optimizers.
OptiMate SAE Connectors, compatible with all used in the industry, designed to accept OptiMate’s boot and cap or in-line seal that protects the connection against water, dust and dirt. Very useful whilst riding as the pins will not corrode, and in workshop/outdoor applications, where cables can end up trailing on the ground.
OptiMate custom battery clips are designed for square powersport batteries, the flat tabs found on some small powersport and gel deep-cycle batteries, as well as the round posts common in automotive applications.
OptiMate moulded battery rings (M6/1/4”) are specifically designed for powersport batteries, a much better alternative to the common M8 / 5/16” ring.
OptiMate auto connectors (21mm) have built-in fuse protection, sockets with retainer slots for the leaf springs and with sealing caps.
 OptiMate Bike (DIN) connector (12mm) is now fully moulded, and available in low profile 90 and 180-degree versions.
OptiMate DC 2.5mm connectors, commonly used in heated clothing, have in-line seals/boots for every connection and a battery lead that comes with 16 gauge (1.31mm2) cable, rated to –40°C.
The complete award-winning OptiMate range of accessories and battery maintenance and diagnostics products and systems are available from OptiMate distributors worldwide, including MotoHaus in the UK.
