Check your grounds

I know it seems odd, but before you chase wires all over the bike looking for a bad connection, clean and check (using an ohm meter) your grounds. Grounds are the often ignored item that contributes exactly 50% to each and every electrical connection on your bike. You can also check if it's the relay by installing a 3-prong standard relay in it's place. Wiring it in is easy. Look under the 'tips and tricks' section for the schematic. Good luck!
