Thanks it been frustrating. I put passing lamps and a necelle headlight assembly in years ago. Used crimp fitting for all the splices, after having the headlight fail, I went back in and soldered all connections and shrink wrapped...thinking I was well on my way to lighting up the night. That never corrected the issue, so I limited nighttime rides. Finnally went back in last week, took all the metal off the headlamp and plugged in the H4, then proceeded to move things around. Come to find out it was in the receptacle.
I used a jewlers screwdrivers in an effort to close the gap on the 3 "C" fittings within the reeptacle, but they are clipped into the plastic recep, so tightening was difficult as I had to use the plastic for leverage, Idid not see a release to remove them. With the bulb in, there is still a heavy 1/16" of play. I think the plastic on the recep is worn,but cannot figure how it would happen.
No sign of excessive heat visually or smell.
I've been running without an inspection for 5 years, as I don't ride it much, so the strobe kind of draws johnny laws attention on the bldv.
Prolly gonna replace the recept, but I only need a 3 wire (1 Female) "Socket" (As it appears on eastern bevers site per the 'H4 dual relay headlight kit detail")
