Headlight problem on 1995 GL1500 SE

Post by Goldwingtrike95 » Wed Aug 01, 2012 10:21 am



Recently I have had a problem of my headlight occasionally not coming on when I start my bike. Then when I engage the clutch (say as I am coming to a stop sign) it comes back on. Any suggestions as to what might be the problem? :? :?

I think that maybe operating the clutch and having the light come on is a coincidence. It is quite possible that the start switch is dirty. The start switch is what turns off the headlight during starting. Try flicking the starter switch quickly the next time you have the headlight problem. If the light comes back on, then the start switch will need cleaning.
