Headlight issues

Post by Snowbrainz »

Hello I'm in the process of getting rid of the vetter faring on my 1978 gl1000. I'm starting to reinstall lights and I'm having an issue that my headlight only comes on when bumping the starter button. This is the first bike I've wrenched on and I've never been great with electrical systems so any advice would be great.

Sounds like something is backwards. The headlight should go off when you hit the starter.
