Head light

Postby mikie 1954 » Fri Apr 15, 2016 4:18 pm



I have a 1983 GL1100I and the headlight has stopped working . I think it's just a bad connection some were as I have got it back on and then the next time I start the bike up it it is not working again . Is there something that I should be looking at or just start looking ?

When it doesn't work,poke at the start button a few times.Power for the headlight goes through it.

Found the problem, a mouse chewed on some wires. Got that fixed now there's no rear left turn on the back, get to check some more wires .
