Sometimes HID wont turn on with start
so ive been having this problem pretty much since i installed my HIDs last year. i have the delay relay installed as well so im not double firing. about half the time everything works like it should: i start the bike and about 10 seconds later my headlight turns on. sometimes, however, ill start the bike and ill hear the ignitor firing/ticking but the headlight never illuminates. the frustrating part is that the only way i can turn it on at that point is to turn off my bike and restart it.
i have noticed though that if i give a little gas while the ignitor is firing that the headlight will turn on everytime. which makes me think its related to my battery charge. but i just got a new 8 cell lipo battery several months ago.
i have a 2003 so im constantly paranoid that my regulator is bad and is messing stuff up, but i have never gotten voltage measurements to support that. maybe i should check again... any suggestions?
