I had a motor error today - thinking it was water/ damp ingress I stripped it down to dry out. I removed the power cable and saw some corrosion. Anyone else had this before? Bike drying now - hopefully it will work in the morning.

both pos and neg terminals are dirty( and the pos has copper sulphate deposits.) Clean them up and use contact cleaner which not only helps remove oxidation but also provides future protection......albeit not for ever, so needs repeating occasionally......if well sealed probably once a year is fine. You can also see that the casing of the plug is just as dirty beyond the 2 green seals and behind them suggesting they are doing very little to prevent moisture ingress. Clean the cap and the socket it connects to, use something like silicone liquid lube on the seals and apply some grease on the cap behind them. The electrical connection will then be good and properly sealed from the elements.

I’ve given it a pretty good clean - I’ll get hold of some contact cleaner to give it another go. Thanks for the feedback
