PostSubject: Headlight Short   Headlight Short I_icon_minitimeTue Aug 31, 2010 10:58 am

I was riding home a couple of nights ago when i noticed my headlight was out. I immediately pulled over, left the scooter in a safe spot and called my wife to come pick me up. I figured it was probably a blown fuse since my high beam wasn't working either.

The next day i picked up my scooter I checked the fuses and they were fine. I noticed that whenever I turned the scooter one the headlight would come on for a short amount of time and then go back out again. The high beam didn't work.

Every once in a while the headlight will start working randomly, but as soon as I switch the high beam on, it will go out completely, not working at all again until it randomly decides to start working again.

Do you guys have any ideas on how to proceed to start fixing this problem?

I can not hazard a guess without knowing the following - What color is your bike? Headlight Short Icon_smile

Seriously, I'd think that the problem (just a guess) is possibly an electrical open (since fuses are not blowing) and the likely candidates are the hi/lo switch or a faulty (loose) connection. Have you had the front cover off the bike recently?

I had a somewhat similar problem and it was suggested that it may be caused by the starter button which is made to turn off the headlight during starting. My headlight went out and came back on if I wiggled the starter button. Apparently it cured itself, as it has not bother for some time now.

Try tapping your starter switch housing. If it flickers on then you have a bad switch. If this doesnt help. Reach up behind the headlight and see if the boot is on tight to the bulb. There is also a connector up there which goe to all the lights in the fairing.

Spray some WD40 in the starter switch.

Great suggestions guys. I will give em all a try. It definitely makes sense to me that it would be the either the starter switch or the high low switch.
