headlights not working again.

well headlights are not working again. i have soldered the wire in the kill/starter switch twice now. first time the guy at the motorcycle shop did it and it didnt hold for a day. then one of the arnament guys i work with who did 23 yrs in the airforce who is by far the best at soldering did it for me. i mean he took his time and took like and hour to do it which it lasted maybe 2 weeks. and when i started it to head home after work there off. so ive come to realize its not working. so my question is do i have to buy the whole kill switch or can i replace the lower half only?

Whole switch, but it shouldn't be necessary... you should be using a eutectic solder and a 40W iorn, once you have those de-solder and clean the joint thoroughly and resolder. Should hold up fine.

What year do you have? I've got my old killswitch assembly off an 05, if you're interested I'd sell it on the cheap.
