Contacts are important

I'm in the process of converting a 1980 Interstate to naked and during the process have found I had NO headlight after resolving many various wiring issues after removing the fairing. I actually checked the headlight fuse with my meter and discovered I had voltage a plenty at both ends of the little glass fuse. I spent a few days searching and testing wring switches and harnesses with no answer. Eventually I ended up back at the fuse and rechecked.....I found to my surprise that the fuse was good but there was corrosion on the fuse holder stopping the flow of electrons causing the problem. I cleaned the contacts and BAM no problem power to the headlight feed.! What we all deal with here again and again....clean clean clean EVERTHING ...
