HI,
Unsure if they are still available new to buy.
Try Lms or Force.

If not, some members have made up replacements, not the most complicated harmesses.

Regards

George

I note you are a relatively new MT owner and forum member The bike you have is a few decades old ,whilst many spares are available, some are rare if not impossible to buy off the shelf

Owners have made up their own replacement wiring looms and I suspect that is the only way to meet your specification

Probably quite difficult to locate now in good condition , bearing in mind the bikes are 30 years old . but someone might have a decent one they don't need

Force Motorcycles and LMS Lichfield sell new looms for the MT350 (listed as "wiring harness" on their websites), but the 350 and 500 have a number of differences in their wiring so its not interchangeable off the shelf .
It is worth giving them a phone call , just in case they have a 500 one in stock that's not listed on the website.

Of course you can still buy a new loom, that one there, £200.

The assumption is that you are looking for just the main loom I don't know if the MT500 is the same as the MT350 which has a sub-loom also It links from the main loom and serves the cowl They too aren't quite rocking horse poop......
