So I have on 06 dyna Street bob. New bike to me and new to riding. I have been going through and upgrading different things here and there ( it was basically a parts bike). But as I get up to the wiring For the headlight, turn signals, and hand controls. I have noticed that the wiring does not look as nice and clean as I would like. Now I’m wondering if there is anyway I could possibly upgrade the wiring, whether that be a wiring kit that I would have to build my self or are there harnesses out there that I can just plug in and go?

Replacement wiring harnesses are not cheap. If everything is working as it should, maybe just first clean up what you can see, resoldering and using shrink tubing to do away with suspect connections. Don't fix what ain't broke.
Some pics might help.

In my opinion soldering is not the best way to join wires, you soldering fans can scream all you want.
In a tight place like under the sheathing of a wiring harness, a butt connector is not the best idea either, it takes up too much space.

I crimp on a female Deutsch (stamped and formed type, not solid) socket on one wire, and a male Deutsch pin on the other wire, pin them together and cover the joint with shrink tube. It won`t come apart and takes up almost no space, just stagger the repairs if there is more than one to be made in the same area.
