Headlight troubles **It was the starter switch **
Alright so to start I have a 2004 CBR600RR 16K miles. It has never been down and is well maintained. Alright to the problem. My headlights started acting weird a few weeks ago. I start the bike and my headlights both work for about 10 seconds or so and then they shut off. It did that about 95% of the time. The other times it would either work or it wouldn't. So I figure it has to be the headlight relay. So I replaced the relay. Same problem. Now I believe the problem is within the starter switch. If I turn the key on (with the kill switch in the off) and the low beam isn't on, I can push the starter button and the headlight will come on. I have searched the forums, my service manual, and parts diagram and I can't figure out how to get the switch assembly apart or what it looks like inside. I know there are the two screw in the bottom but other than that I'm clueless. Any advice, pictures, or diagrams to help me solve this problem would be awesome.
