Exclamation Constant Raincloud!!!

so lately ive had a constant rain cloud hanging over my head... actually its been a sh!t storm...but heres some small fuel to add to my fire...

so i was on my way to work... and i pull up behind a car.. i see the reflection of my bike and notice my head lights are out..every thing else is working ... signals gauge cluster and even the 3rd eye... the only thing that is out are lowbeam/highbeam and the high beam indicator on the gauge... the only think i can think of is a blown fuse... cause i have reg stock lights... things were always fine until today... i havent really looked into it because im at work but i need to ride home at night... so if nothing works i might be calling for a ride...


so if any body has any suggestions shoot them my way...
thanks...

RIP PHATTY!

check the black sockets that the bulbs slide into make sure one of its prongs is not loose
they are famous for getting loose causing either a short in the sockets or the lights going
out
Check out this picture part # 6 is what i am talking about

killswitch? If the stuff the people above did not work, try taking apart the killswitch. The wire that goes tothe headlights gets loose in there sometimes. Jusr have to resolder

SOOOOO...

after trying all of the above... nothing worked... checked the bulbs, fuses, killswitch... everything people above mentioned...

so after hours of ripping everything apart and trying to find out exactly where the power was out... me and a buddy came to the conclusion...



i had power from the fuses on through the wireing harness but for some reason was loosing the power from "A" to "B" after further investigation we discovered that it wasnt from a to b at all...

it happend to be the RELAY behind the headlights... so as of right now i just waiting to get a new relay and i just hooked up a wire to bypass the RELAY... but if it starts to become to much it should just pop the fuse...

i havent rode it my bike yet since its still halfway apart... but the wire just for an emergency...

soo my question is how rare is it for these RELAY to stop functioning... is it possible for there to be a short that is overloading the RELAY... ??? if soo i think i need to follow the whole wire harnest to see whats going on...


let me know ur thoughts... THANKS!!!

RIP PHATTY!

The easy answer is - how much did you pay for that relay? they do fail, not frequently but they do - you just might be the "lucky" one
