For some reason my high beam stopped working. Its not the bulb since I replaced it...


What happens is when i turn it on the blue high beam light pops up and goes out. After that it does not come on at all no matter how many times i press it.

Where should i start looking and troubleshooting... I checked the wiring by the light and it's fine. It must be something else going to the battery or somewhere else where its connected.

- Thanks

Its probably your switch housing. The contact points get corroded after a while, even quicker if the bike gets left outside in various weather conditions.

Either take your housing apart and clean the contact points, or buy a new housing.

Try flipping your switch to the high beam, and then lightly press on the low beam side but don't actually flip it back to low. My 03 is going to have this problem in the future, because my switch is already finicky.

Same with the start switch. Sometime lightly "sticks", and headlight doesn't come back on.

Ya my kill switch housing could use replacing as well. I can actually press down on the run end of the switch and kill the bike with the switch in the run position. Pretty much exact same behavior with headlight switch.

Guys you are right! THANK YOU!!! I just had to play with it and it works. I will open the housing and clean it up.

Thanks again
