HI...I am posting this for a friend who has a 99 FLTRI Road Glide with a ferring. The headlight connectors melt off at the bulb, but the bulb stays good. Three have melted off so far but not all on the same side. He says the voltage checks out when tested. The wiring harness splits off and goes to the lights but the harness never has burnt, just his connectors at the lamps. Any help would be nice.

I had the same problem on my road glide. I did not replace the harness, I replaced the connectors. I soldered on the connectors, put heat shrink on the wires, and then added liquid insulation all over the end of the connector where the wires come out. I also noticed the connectors had rubbed the paint off behind the sockets(maybee shorting slightly) I applied liquid insulation there also. Hasn't happened in a year.
