..... if there are no additional electrical loads on the bike (HID lighting being the #1 killer of electrical systems), when you replace the melted parts with new, go through every single pull apart electrical connector on the bike and inspect. When you have it apart, flood each one with dielectric grease to prevent corrosion in the future. The action of taking the connectors apart will scrape away the rust between the contacts. When you fill it with the grease, that will provide a barrier to oxygen so the corrosion cannot re-form. Pushing the contacts back in place will scrape away a little more of the grunge on the pins and make a good electrical contact.

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
