headlight issue

Post by theiggy » Sat May 11, 2013 4:55 pm

My headlight stopped working and the bulb is not the issue. Is there a fuse box and a fuse for the head lights? Other ideas?

the fuse for the headlight is in the false tank. lift the lid and you will see the fusebox towards the front of the bike.

Also check your starter button. It turns the headlight off when pushed, and it can get dirty. Try wiggling it around and shooting some electrical contact cleaner in there.
