Default Pin extractor size for '01 handlebar wiring?

I'm removing my stock 883 bars and replacing them with clip-ons, which I'll be drilling to route the wires internally. But before I can do so, I need to remove the multi-pin plastic connectors as they are too big to route through a small wiring hole in the bar.

What size pins are in the connectors which are stuffed in teh back of the headlight? The local Radio Shack has a .093" one, but I'm unsure if this is the right size. Please advise. I'd like to have the proper tool instead of taking my chances with a small pick, paper clip, safety pin, or other.

Thanks,

Ian

Default

Nevermind. They don't use barbed pins. They are simply held in place by plastic tabs that can be pushed aside by a tiny flathead screwdriver of similar tool. I got 'em out and ran the wires tonight, not probelm, excpet that the 3/8" holes I drilled were a tad small. I recommend 7/16" for anyone trying it.
