Headlight wont turn on...wtf?
04 600RR, around 18,500 miles, slip on exhaust only non-cosmetic mod. I rode my bike up to a friends house in a town about 20 miles up the road because he had another one of my friends staying with him (who lives halfway across the state so I dont get to see him often). Anyway when I got there the headlight worked fine. Shut off the bike, went inside and talked for maybe 2 minutes before we started walking to yet another friends house just a block away. On the way out we stopped at my bike so I could (ill admit) show off a bit. I turned it on and it was still at 186 degrees, so I gave it a few quick revs. Highest rev was 4500, Im not a fan of wrapping it up and then shutting it off. Anyway let it idle a few seconds then shut it off.
So we go over to my friends house, play some Modern Warfare 2, have some pizza, etc etc (no alcohol for me), and then me and my brother walk back to the apartment to head back to town. It was around 11:30 when we were firing up our bikes. I noticed that my light was a bit dim so I hopped off and looked, sure enough only the 3rd eye is on. I tried restarting the bike and still only the 3rd eye. So I just had to use my high beam all the way home.
Ive looked at the wires going to the headlight and everything seems fine. The high beam works like I said, the 3rd eye works, everything works except for my daytime running headlight for some reason. The guy who owned it before me upgraded the bulbs to halogen bulbs (white/blue light, not HID blue though).
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I dont want to ride at night until its fixed. Using the high beam only could cause problems for other traffic I would imagine. Thanks!
