Mine still do intermittent. Yes, the best ocd thing I've done to Zukie is sanded, cleaned, and dielectric greased every single ground screw I've been able to find, the backing that touches the body, and the little O connectors, some of which I replaced. Peace of mind, and it looks good. Heh.
I plan on doing a lot of this and replacing wiring with new when I get my new motor and do the swap.

Why dielectric?  Itís not conductive, so it seems counterintuitive.     I like koper coat.   It works well for me. But I guess dielectric grease works well for other people as well.
Cause I had it lying around, heh. Mostly used it as a corrosion inhibitor. I am always up to hearing about better product options. Especially since my little grease tube is now empty, lol.

If I remember correctly the wiper motor has its own ground to either the windshield frame or maybe the body right next to the windshield frame and motor. For best operation that ground needs to be good as well as a good body to battery ground. Also if I'm remembering correctly, you can remove the windshield frame and access the wiper motor and its ground. Easiest way to get to it.

That being said, I tapped into my wiring under the dash for my accessory, run, and start positions from my key switch and ran them all to relays that trigger an aux fuse box I put in that's wired directly to my battery with a fused connection. I now have full battery power to each when I need it as opposed to the power running through the key switch and all the inadequate wiring on its way to whatever I'm running.

Think clicky starter fix but on a bigger scale. I can't take credit for the idea because I found it on another Suzuki forum in the how to section. Not sure if it's proper to link to another forum here or not.

Anyhow, my wipers, blower motor, etc all work much better now with the proper amount of power running to them.

If MY or Phloop reads this and gives me the go ahead I'll drop the link into this thread.

Go ahead and post it. This isn't pirate.

I got to spend some time with my son in law George this morning. It was good for my soul to hang with him for awhile. Later in the day James and I rode over the mountian to pick up a cam for a customer. Longest jaunt on the Electra Glide so far. Cold but fun.

Glad you got some well deserved respite for once. And a mega fun sounding one too :)
