I'm looking to reverse engineer the JB, maybe figure out why so many headlight relays fail, and such. I'd like to come up with a plug and play replacement.
So if anyone has a spare kicking around, I can offer you the first replacement JB in exchange.

Great idea, very do-able !
Should your engineering be relay replacement, I believe one obstacle to overcome may be the replacement relay Physical size...

I will almost guarantee that the relay stops working as a result of pitting and carbon fouled contacts due to arcing when the contacts close....seen it WAY TOO OFTEN on relays.

The fix is as easy as polishing the contacts....assuming you can get to them.

Seeing as mine is down for a while I'd offer to pull the one off my bike and send it your way ..... as long as I can get it or a replacement back around springtime. I really don't think I'll be riding around in the snow this year.
