Default What is this plug called

That grey plug - its only ~3/4" across and 3/8" wide and has 2 rows of 8 pins each.
I'd like to know what its name is, so I can buy some more of it for - get this - my motorcycle. I know you guys are the electronic geniuses so I know you'd steer me right.
Thanks.
Srinath.

More specifically, it looks like a Molex Mini-Fit connector.

Edit: Oh, the grey one. I don't recognise that one.

This looks like a standard Molex connector. Molex has a range of similar looking connectors that have different pins pitches, e.g. 3mm, 4.8 mm. So you need to be sure of which yours is. They are stocked by a lot of places including for example Element 14 (https://in.element14.com/molex/39012...lon/dp/4138429) and Digikey (Rectangular Connectors - Housings | Connectors, Interconnects | DigiKey)

Looks like an automotive connector...or automotive radio connector.

These can be difficult to track down.

Start your search with the motorcycle manufacturer and/or whatever it plugs into.

Its a yamaha motorcycle, however I am trying to connect it to the other one in the pic, or a equally small as the grey one but 24 pin - I don't need that, I need just the female to that 16 pin so I can wire into it and connect the 24 pin gauge at the other end.
The entire bike only has that 1 connector like that, the whole rest of it has nothing similar.
Thanks.
Srinath.

I think its a nano FiT molex - or something like that.
The 24 pin version is this one.
Motorcycle Universal Aluminium LCD Digital Speedometer Tachometer Odometer Gauge | eBay

If I find the 2X8 pin female, I can cut the wires at the 3 ends and wire em into the male 2X12 pin that goes to this gauge.
BTW does color determine size ? Both the 24 and the 16 pin ones are grey, the bigger ones are white.
Thanks.
Srinath.
