Brodie hasn't sold them for a while... it is very robust to the point of overdesign, but he did give me the component list... back then another gent (Roadrunner) made up a couple of individual jumpers for two or three of the heavy draw spiders. I would say do that instead, much less work. The two big ones are S4 and S7 per this diagram by our dearly departed friend Queensland Ken. The flaw in the design is all the current just keeps adding up and overloading the small gauge return wire out of each spider (metric 1.0 mm2, almost 16 ga.). Tapping in and grounding S4 and S7 separately with a heavier gauge wire direct to a good ground is way better.
Brodie and Roadrunner got the mating 6-way connector, ran 6 slightly heavier wires (16 ga) out of it for a few inches, used a butt connector (soldered) to a 12 ga. wire which Roadrunner took to ground, or Brodie took all his 12's to a 10ga to one ground on the battery negative post (slight overkill, LOL). 12 ga. is plenty good. There are a couple of threaded holes in the frame (one aft of the battery) or find a suitable engine bolt to ground it if you wish. Main battery ground is attached to an engine case bolt, right side behind the headers.

The Yamaha recall addressed S4 only... IMHO they should have added S7, but if you treat all the spiders with contact paste, you'll get by.

The 6-way connector you are looking for is Sumitomo unsealed MT series, 6P090-MT-SPA. The only source I know of is Eastern Beaver.
I would also use contact paste instead of dielectric grease.

I have stood looking at auto stores and can find all kinds of die electric grease but not contact past. What are you using? It it available on line.
I checked all my spiders this spring and everyone was clean and happy. I have had the Yamaha ignition switch and ground recall done but next time I check ground spiders I would love to have some of the contact paste you talked about.

I use a brand of "electrically conductive corrosion inhibiting compound" called NOALOX. Available at places like Home Depot or online.

Home Depot carries Ox-Gard in Canada. Made for aluminum wiring to prevent oxidation and is a conductive paste. We don't seem to have NOALOX here, but it is essentially the same stuff.
