The lanyard issue isn't just a MC problem. Any application of the lanyard eventually results in it's failure. Our Evinrude outboard lanyard died, a friend's snowmobile had one that died....... As far as corrosion goes, it is a never-ending nemesis to the used boat owner. I think I have finally taken care of every electrical and mechanical connection in my '77. Time to start over to stay ahead of the corrosion this time. Buy a big tube of dielectric grease and use it on every electrical connection. Don't need a lot, but it makes a huge difference.
