Kojaycat

I'm about to place an order with this company Kojaycat for cable, crimps etc. Anybody used them before? they are considerably cheaper than Vehicle Wiring Products.

Dealt with kojaycat a lot with the rebuild on my Ktm and he was quite knowledgeable and delivery was quite good.

He does the genuine superseal connectors as well which are way better than the copy ones on ebay which don't fit together properly or connect all the time.

But I think pound for pound autoelectrical supplies is cheaper when I totalled up the full cost of my boats rewiring with tinned cable.

I've just had a look at AES, their prices look higher than Kojaycat, especially on heatshrink terminals etc, they don't seem to do tinned flat twin either, unless I've missed something. I know Vehicle Wiring Products have been recommended on here before, but they are even more expensive.

I found what I was looking for on both sites and put them in my basket and added on vat and delivery and AES came out cheaper But maybe different items for different builds will bring cheaper prices on different sites.

Kojaycat also has a ebay site and sometimes has cheaper prices with postage on ebay than the site.

Quick update, I placed my order with Kojaycat on Weds & it arrived in Friday, got 10% discount as my order was over 150. Good quality cable, UK made tinned copper.
Would use him again no problem.
