Do SKS Chromoplastic fenders burn out? My tail light stopped working and, after some troubleshooting, I isolated the problem to my rear fender. Bypassing the fender part of the circuit with normal wires causes the tail light to work as normal.
Taking a closer look at the copper leads on the inside of the rear fender, it looks like they burned/corroded away near the forward grommets. See below picture. Has anyone else heard about this happening before? I find it hard to believe that copper strips can be damaged by the levels of current (dynamo-generated, through a B&M front light) that I have flowing through the fenders. I scrubbed/degreased the grommets thinking that they might have corroded over, but that didn't solve anything (still no connectivity between front and rear grommets).
