I don't understand the nature of your problem. I've had two R1100Ses, and put tens of thousands of miles on them, all without a hint of any sort of issue, including electrical. I wired in a GPS, intercom, and accessory plug (twice, once on each bike), all without any hint of issues. 
note none of you accessories was added to the rear harness, I think that is where the weakness in the wiring is.
