Is there a single point of failure for high beam and low beam? The fuse is good. Could there be a relay that has gone bad?
:agree: the headlights will turn off when the starter switch is pushed, to help limit current drain on the battery while starting. If the switch does not fully return and make contact for the headlight circuit when released, you no getta da lights.Check that your starter switch is pulled out all the way. I had a switch once that after being pushed to engage the starter would return enough that the starter would stop, but the headlights would still be cut out. If I pulled on the switch it would return a little further and the headlights would then come back on.
It's necessary to buy the whole control. Check with some salvage yards.I had the same problem.... messed and messed with the switch and could get it to flash on and off but could not keep it on.... took the switch apart and found one of the wires broken where it goes into the start switch....could not get it soilders back together....has to soider the wires together now the head light stays on while trying to start the bike.
Can a person get a switch or do you have to buy the whole control?????
