Headlight will not work on 1976 GL 1000

Postby gspecial » Thu May 24, 2012 9:14 pm



On my 1976 GL 1000 the wire for the high beam shorted on the frame. I fixed the wire but the headlight will not work at all. I purchased a new bulb and tried to jump the RLU and still nothing. All other lights work fine.

Does the low beam work?
If it does,look at the hi/low switch.
If it doesn't ,look at the starter button(switch)...Main power is switched there and then sent to the hi/low switch.The headlight is switched off during cranking.
You can download the schematic for the bike under the "Manuals" section.
