There's a handy dielectric contact spray at Radio Shack that can improve weak contacts. You spray it into plug connectors and the like to improve the current flow. Especially useful on older bikes that may have been stored outdoors or run in a lot of rain.

Still waiting for the Minion of Stan(tm) to advise salt water immersion......

I once had an issue with one of my Guzzis. Water got into the right handlebar switchgear and caused the starter button to keep engaging! Fun when you are moving along. Luckily I was close to home at the time, so I unscrewed the two halves, dried it out, and slathered everything in dielectric grease. That can help a lot too.
