    • I write about electric motorcycles...

so I got this chintzy thing at Radio Shack, jerry-rigged it to my electric vest, with some help from Frank Caridi, and had to jerry-rig it myself again. Then that connection broke when I accidentally pulled on it.

Now when I connect the wires correctly, I get nothing.
Did I short it out because it was on when I pulled it apart?
Did I short out my electric vest?
Should I just keep replacing these or do any of you know of a better product to connect an electric vest?

I gotta fix it this weekend so I don't die of freezation riding to work! It's been so cold here, like almost 50!
 :P

thanks!!!

Those plugs usually have a fuse inside.
