Electrical Work - not very rewarding...

Let's just say this is pretty much one of the most tedious tasks to do on a bike.  Here are some picture to see some of the things I cleaned up.  I really didn't know that they were bad, but I'd be willing to guess that there were about 15.4 bad electrical connections from sitting in a shed for 13 years...

The best advice I can give when doing electrical work is not to be afraid to take things apart.  Do pay attention to where they came from and only work on one piece at a time so you don't have a pile of stuff on the garage floor you don't know how to put back on the motorcycle.

Dielectric greasing  Cleaning the Ground
When pulling electrical wiring apart, I always will squirt a bit of dielectric grease to prevent future corrosion / moisture. A bike's ground point is critical.  Here I clean the ground strap and the point where it is secured to the bike.
