The brown wire is the main wire between the ign s/w and fusebox. So Irrc it carries all the switched circuits at the fusebox. besides the wire being wimpy, barrel type connectors aren't that great.
 As Bill said - add a relay in the headlight circuit to take some load off. Especially if you have a higher wattage bulb. 
Don't forget to clean and crimp the connector tighter.

I couldn't find in the archives, but wasn't there a rewiring solution for the too-narrow gauge main wiring (brown)?  IIRC, it involved wiring in a relay.
Any listers recall this?  It's come up because I was going over the bike and saw some corrosion.  She'll still start an run ok, but I'd rather not be surprised.
