High beam on, tail light off

Postby raggun » Sat Aug 13, 2011 6:00 pm



hi
Just got my "new" 1981 from the USA, She has got 34þ miles on the clock.

Started by getting her new timing belts, bearings and tensionsers.

I am currently in the phase of riding and discovering all kinds of "niks and naks"

One of the first one was that if I turn the high beam on the tail light goes off...

Anybody know what can be happening.

Cheers Ragnar
