When I striped the wire it is black vs copper. I have yet to find burn marks on the outside of it. Possibly a bad rectifier caused it. Have new ones on order. Don't want to ruin those with a bad wire.

Don't believe it to be heat damage. Some form of oxidation/corrosion. While they're theoretically sealed connectors apparently they don't seal all that well.

I hardly ever drive mine in the rain. Only if caught unexpectedly and that ain't very often. Yet, based on posts here, I checked the rectifier connections on my VN2K and sure enough corrosion had started. Was able to clean it up pretty well, but I ordered two new connectors to have on hand when that time comes.

Now I need to find where I stashed the actual parts for safe keeping. :(
hah!

I do that ALLLLL the time!


Personally, I blame it on my "garage gremlins".

These are the same devious critters who will move a tool after I put it down.
