The Miracle Grease
Recently, my bike’s headlights became intermittent again. Dipped headlights would not come on but high beam would. It is due to a broken rocker switch on the left hand cluster. See here for previous repairs.
I thought that the repaired switch had broke again and bought epoxy to repair it again. However, when I opened it up, the item was still good but I noticed that the surfaces had become tarnished. A little sand paper work and the switch worked again. However, this time, I put some miracle grease onto the contacts to make sure that this does not happen again.
Introducing the Silicon Dielectric Grease!
Apparently, this miracle grease is supposed to maintain electric connection while staying greasy and providing lubrication. In addition, if this was applied to the contacts, it will help to prevent corrosion by keeping moisture out. I first read it in the GSXR forum where GSX-R 1000 K1 and K2 suffered electrical problems due to cheapo non-weather proof connectors at the right side of the fairing. This also cause me quite a bit of grief when I first bought the bike.
I have now filled these connectors with the miracle grease and hope that from now on electrical gremlins will not appear again! Muahahaha!
Try it and see if it works for you. The tube cost me SGD$34. A bit pricey, but worth it!
