Waterproofing Harness Plugs?

So I've turned my Gen4 into a dedicated track bike and removed the front light and front turn signals.

Does anyone know of some harness plugs to fit into the open spots where the lights used to connect?
Just thinking I want to block out condensation of the open harness plug connectors.



Thanks,
Chris

That.

and then, you can buy caps/covers for the connectors too. or just wrap electrical tape over the top.

Shut up and ride.

Thanks, will definitely do the dielectric grease.
Still have some leftover from a Jeep spark plug change.

For buying caps/covers, would that be something that Autozone would have? If an internet order, have any links to a few examples?



Thanks

Like everyone else mentioned, dielectric grease.

I've used oversized caps held down with heat shrink tubing. It's tougher than rubber gloves, but takes more time to install. Fill plug with dielectric grease, put cap over plug, slide heat shrink tube over cap/plug and shrink it making sure to cover the cap to plug harness. Works well for longer periods.
