Protect your new wiring harness end to end from the elements, helping to ensure it has a long life and you spend more time on the road than you do on the side of it.
We’ve spent quite a bit of time researching and collecting the best, industrial-grade automotive loom components on the market into one comprehensive kit providing with everything you need to build a harness as good, and in some cases better, as an OEM manufacturer. This kit will protect your harness from weather, abrasion, oil, fuel, solvents, engine heat and to some extent exhaust temperatures.
Included in the kit you’ll find PVC Vinyl Loom, Woven Split Loom, Double-walled, adhesive lined Heat Shrink and Tesa Fabric Tape.
When assembling this kit we took the average lengths we generally use on a build and added a few more feet of each just to be sure we've got you covered. But if your swinging from ape hangars or find another need additional Vinyl and Split loom can be purchased by the foot here in our store.
Our system incorporates Vinyl Loom for exposed areas to protect from weather, Split Loom under the tank and seat to allow for drainage with Tesa Tape at transitions from one Loom to another, as well as Heat Shrink at loom terminations. This arrangement can produce a harness that will keep the elements out but allow for drainage should water get in so that your harness isn’t steeping in it, allowing for slow absorption through the wire sheathing resulting in corrosion and increased wire resistance and electrical failure.
You can find descriptions for each material as well as lengths or quantities provided in the Details tab. Click on the Specs tab if you want to get nerdy on the specifics all of the classifications, as well as manufacturer approvals.

PVC vinyl tubing is made for automotive wiring and is what you often find on OEM motorcycle harnesses. It makes for a clean, tidy appearance of visibly exposed wiring while providing a high level of protection from the harsh environment your system will be exposed to. This PVC vinyl tubing is extremely flexible, liquid-tight, abrasion-resistant and meets VW-1 flammability along with UL type B standards which is why it’s the industry standard for motorcycle wiring harnesses.
Our Split Loom is an industrial-grade product approved for use by nearly every automotive manufacturer you can think of. The high-density flat-knit weave combination of PET monofilament and textured Multifilament won't unravel at the ends and provides superior abrasion resistance while it protects your wiring from fluids by allowing moisture to drain away. It is s the creme de la creme of harness solutions providing durable, heat resistant protection while being the easiest option to work with. No fishing wires down a tube, or tape wrapping; add, remove or inspect wiring without deconstructing your harness apart in the process. The high-density flat-knit weave combination of PET monofilament.
Tesa Cloth Harness Tape is not your run of the mill electrical tape. The industrial-grade harness tape designed for use in the inhospitable environs of engine bays and is the very same tape used by Mercedes, VW and numerous other automotive manufacturers. Made from abrasion-resistant PET cloth and backed with an acrylic adhesive, this tape has high tensile strength and the adhesive will not turn to goo when exposed to heat or fuel. You can use this tape to wrap an entire harness and rest assured that it won't become a sticky dirty mess.
|Dual-Wall Heat Shrink|
|Cut to 6" lengths|
Polyolefin Dual-Walled Heat Shrink has a myriad of applications when wiring a bike. Heat shrink can be used for an added layer of protection from abrasion, chaffing, fatigue, and strain relief to the wire as well as joints and terminals. A Cross-linked treatment closes the pores in the PVC decreasing the ability for fluids to find a way in, the hot melt glue inner layer further seals out water, fuel, and solvents from entering from the sides and at the endpoints. Secure wire loom in its place while helping seal moisture out of PVC Vinyl Loom terminations.
