Buy an aerosol spray tin of De-Oxit and treat every single block connector on the bike, especially the altearnator ones already mentioned. It's not cheap stuff but it's fantastic. I did my XS1100 harness and the GL1000 one too. It removes all the crud and oxidised metal from the brass terminals, leaving them clean and shiny.

There are blocks in the headlight, under the laft and right frame tubes under the tank (from the switches), all the obvious ones and the ones lurking behind the battery cover.

Spend the money, buy a tin and do everything, including the insides of the handlebar switches......
