Is there a specific size I need to ask for? Short of bringing it in?

ACE was going to be my suggestion as well.

You might try taking some pictures of the pin from different angles next to a ruler or something if you're unsure of the size. When you go toward the back (straight back from the door when you enter) you'll see they just have huge bins of all kinds of connector pins.

Am I just going to be getting some real thin needle node pliers to get them out or will it take some special electric tool. Since its to the gauge cluster I don't want to mess up the plug for sure!

The plastic socket has a snap type wedge that the pin clips into. There's a special tool used to remove it, it looks like a hollowed out screw driver. You put it in where the connections would mate up. Push it in and the pin pops out of the back of the connector.

Will the bike run as is? If so run over to ACE, one of the guys will come out and look at it for you and tell you exactly what you need.

Yeah it runs fine but it is a track bike so I would have to railer it over there. That's what I was looking for though I'll make sure to ask for that tool. Guess I'll head over there after work

almost every pin can be pulled out with a small pick. some plugs will have a locking mech on the rear before you can remove the pin. shine a flashlight down the front or rear, you can see how it locks in place. no need to replace it, just pull out the pin, strip the wire and solder it.

those 2 tabs on either side on the rear of the plug keeps the pin from coming out. 2 for the top row and 2 for the bottom row. pry them back a little and you should be able to fold the plastic tab up. then look from the front with a flashlight, use a small pick or paperclip and press the locking tab out of the way and pull the pin out. probably be easier if you have a second set of hands to pull the pin while you press the pick in.

not sure how big seal picks are. just make sure its not big enough to break the plastic plug or bend the pin when you jam it in there.

Guess I'll head to the ace place that anatram spoke of to get the proper tool for the job. I'll probably add a length of wrote to them both because they are pulled right no matter the Osijek you route them....
