I have a '79 bike that is currently experiencing voltage loss, causing the battery to die after a couple hours of riding.
It is clear there is lots of corrosion and rust on many of the wires and electrical connectors.
I have two questions.
Voltage loss "adds up" over the entire system, correct? So having 10 rusty connectors causes 10 times a much voltage loss as having 1 rusty connector?
Which of the following fixes will lower voltage loss?
A. Switching lights (turn signals, brakes, and headlight) from incandescent to LEDs
B. Cleaning rusty ground-locations on the bike
C. Removing male-female connectors, and instead using a direct wire (no connector)
D. Replacing 16awg wires with 14awg wires
E. Using a soldering iron to connect wires instead of crimp connectors
