The Yaesus and Kenwoods that have 8 pin DIN plugs are indeed a special
size. The problem, I believe it the positioning of the pins across the
side with the index notch. The Radio Shack connectors will not fit
(however, I think they do fit ICOMs).
Fortunately, I have a little electronic store a few miles away who (for
some reason) carries the right 8 -pin DIN. I know Amateur Electronic
Supply also carries these special 8-pin DINs as well.
