Aftermarket wiring looms

Hi guys,
Does anyone know of anywhere that makes up aftermarket wiring looms?
I bought a wiring loom from ebay for my 1996 XT600e that I bought as a project but it was from a 2000 model and it appears to be a different layout and also on closer inspection some of the wires and connectors arent in the best condition so would like to buy a complete new loom if possible.
If aftermarket are not available does anyone have an idea on price for an original yam loom from a dealer?

I can't help you with new loom prices, but If you try Classic bike magazine there's adverts for both autoelectricians and autoelectrical components.

GOOGLE really is your friend

You have not said what your frame number is so impossible to confirm that data below is the right one.
An approximation indicates that the part you want may be number 4PT8259000 and costs around £164.82

Thanks for the help guys, unfortunatly with the bike being stolen recovered the frame and engine numbers have been removed but im informed that it is a 1996 4PT model which has the later frame design but still used the 3TB engine (changed in 1997). The loom I bought was from a 200 4PT but some of the connectors just dont seem to be in the right place, most notably the connectors for the TCI box are at the rear of the loom just behing the rectifier connectors but the TCI is further forward underneath the seat. Does anyone know if there is any major difference between a loom for a 3TB and a 4PT?

1996 is a bad year mate!
Some XT600E's are the 1995 model but sold in 1996!

If you got some spare time, just take both looms apart from the bike and place them side by side and compare them...

Merry Christmas!
