I recently had same troubles as you. I had S4 recall done about 3 years ago and still had problem off and on. I took all the spiders apart, cleaned and inspected. I used conductive Ox-Gard on ground spiders. Everything worked great till last winter in Mesa. One day it all worked fine and next day no windshield and lite up turn signal lights, high beam light on etc, etc. Anyway I got home and inspected everything again and Ox-Gard all spiders and looked for burnt or hots spots but found nothing. I have a Ram mount for my phone with a plug from glove box. My phone would charge then not charge. I thought it was the phone cord and planned to replace it. The headlight quite, windshield didnít work and all the rest of the stuff. Someone posted that after S4 mod is done trouble may move to S6. I checked S6 and it looked pristine. I thought about it a few days and finally removed S6 spider and stripped all 6 wire and added a 14G wire to the bundle and soldered and heat shrinks the bunch. I took 14G wire up to frame just under front of tank. Thereís a 6m bolt hole there in aluminum frame. I mounted 14G wire to the bolt hole. That was about 4 or 5 weeks ago. Since then everything works great. Windshield seems faster, phone cord I was going to replace works perfect. Headlights (LED) work great. No more symptoms. I have put 1000 miles on bike and nothing! I removed S6 (it looked perfectly ok but I guess it was not). No suggestion here but thatís my story. This is a great bunch to listen too. There is a lot of knowledgeable people on this site. Good luck with your spider bites.
