I was riding earlier this evening and my low beam went out. I checked the connection on the back of the headlamp and everything, they were fine. I rode on with it still off and just the high beam working. After clicking the high beam switch several times, the light came back on by itself. I noticed that the low beam consistently burns at a more amber-ish color than the high beam and will diminish in intensity until it goes out. This is the second time it's happened to me, first I figured to be a fluke. Have any of you guys had this problem?

Thanks

Oh yeah, I'm running the OEM bulbs. I didn't replace the bulb the first time this happened either, so I don't think they can be blamed.

Problem solved

(I think) the plastic base that the H7 plugs into was melted. I switched the high beam's side over and now everything works fine. I just have to get another base from my dealer. I always wondered what the acrid smell that came from my bike when I stopped was. Now at least I know it wasn't clutch :)
