Check the switch, and the head light connector. This is the most likely cause of your problem.

SOURCE: Headlights don't work on start up

Energy must pass through your switch (hi/low or momentary), then to your headlight, and finally to ground. An interruption anywhere will cause the light to go out. Since both your hi and low beams are not working, I suspect a bad ground connection somewhere. Probably in your switch, but if it is easier to check the headlight socket I would check that too. Use a multi-meter, see if you have power to the switch. If you do, ground the negative lead coming to the switch and see if your headlight comes on. If it does, you know you have a bad ground.

It sounds like you have a poor ground connection. You'll have to disassemble and check the wiring harness for broken wires, start up near the ignition switch or around anything that is no longer stock on the bike (like aftermarket turn signals, fuel nanny, power commander, etc.)

SOURCE: my cbr 954 rr headlight both high beam and low

Yes - and there is a fuse for just those items. The other possible cause is a bad starter button. When you push the start button, it does two things: activates the electric starter - and cuts power to the headlight until the button is released. So, if it isn't the fuse, it's probably the start button.

Headlights on my 2004 FZ6 went out while driving at night! bulbs are good...what next, cant find fuses.....


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
9. Weak charging alternator/generator.
10. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

High beam headlights stuck on replaced switch same problem


It can be issue with headlight switch,but as its already been replaced.Try disconnecting high beam headlight wiring from headlight assembly and reconnect direct external wire from headlight switch to headlight assembly,then by switch see if headlight is getting off and turning on or not.

High beam headlights don't work, changed the bulbs, and checked the fuses, help


This is going to be a problem with your light switch or dimmer switch. Replace the light switch and see if that resolves the issue.

My headlights don't work, but the brights do. What caused this and how can I fix it?


Every headlamp has a bulb inside that has two filaments one for high beam and the other one for low beam, if any of those filament is cut then that beam (High or low) won't work. If your high beam work then your fuse it's ok, so you can visually inspect your headlights bulbs for broken filaments. remove bulb socket and remove the bulb carefully to inspect the filaments. if the filaments are atacched from one terminal to the other then the bulb it's ok, if not replace the bulb.

N.Z. Yamaha FZ6S Headlights


There is a genuine reason why this is the standard setup for this bike. At night, the dual-headlight of the bike can appear to other motorists that you are in a car at a much greater distance than is actual. As you can imagine, this might result in someone pulling out in front of you, completely unaware that you are bearing down on them at a short distance. So, for safety reasons, only a single beam is lit when using dipped/low beam.

However, if you accept the risk above, you can do what is known as the 'dual headlight mod'. There are 2 accepted methods for this.

The first method simply requires bridging the 2-pin connector (H7 bulb) to the spare on the 3-pin connector (H4 bulb). Instructions have been posted by ‘Gand’ at the following link:

http://solsar.com/fz6/headlight.htm

The second method is more complex, and requires a decent knowledge of auto-electrics, as you have to remove various components of the bike just to get to the wiring loom. Sorry, I've lost the link for this, but you might be able to find the instructions by searching for 'FZ6 dual headlight mod'.

Note: it differs from country to country, but in the UK (for example), the dual headlight mod will result in an immediate MOT failure. Therefore, you will need to remember to disconnect the mod prior to MOT inspection.
