I have a wee collection of spiders taken from the connectors (I installed a Brodie harness back in the day), and they all "look" ok but have some evidence of some kind of oxidation coating, hard to tell with the original tin plating.
I posted the Sumitomo mating 6-way connector number somewhere.... iff'n anyone wants to go that route, you can put 6 slightly larger gauge wires into it, crimp on the terminals, then 6" away, crimp/solder them together with a 12 ga. wire and run it to a suitable ground location (with eye terminal of course). That will take that particular spider to its own ground. The Brodie harness was done this way, then all the 12 ga. wires connected to one long 10 ga. wire taken to battery ground..... way overdesign, but it worked. I personally would do S4, S6 and S7 and call it a day.

But I have no idea what kind of oil the previous owner used, and it's keeping me up at night.
I was planning on draining some and taking a picture so someone here could identify it for me. Haha 😁

Nice.
If I see so much as a hiccup out of this bike going forward, that sounds like a good plan.

By the way, kind-of a funny side note: I got off the bike today and accidentally hit the hazard flashers. Messed with my head big time.
