So My Headlights Weren't Always Coming On

headlights not coming on, flipping the brights would sometimes make them come on


change out relay with spare, still have problem


pull the wheel and whatnots to get switch out, measured high resistance across one of the leaf switches, cleaned the contact with a small file, and bam. fixed


headlights are even brighter now

Good stuff.  You might want to use some anti-oxide on the contacts.  Also you can clean the contacts with a white pencil eraser (first).  Don't use a pink eraser, as that contains red phosphorus, which will cause corrosion.
