Yes there is a common problem pull off the wiring harness then pull out the headlight bulb
itself there is a black plastic socket that holds the bulb inspect that socket its famous
for getting hot sometimes causing one of its prongs to cause a short

Its part # 6 in this picture

This has also happened to me twice now in a matter of a month. Would it happen that often?

That is correct and i was only asking cause its common for sport bike
riders to change their bulbs to higher output ones without thinking of
the problems caused by such change.

Just like your problems i had problems with my 03 RR head lights as well
check the sockets like i suggested if you see burn effect inspect the
prongs if one is loose then that is your problem right there

Let me know either way i might have a socket or two that you can
have
