Hi Russ,

I will tell you what fixed this on my CBR.

You need to open up the push button starter switch located on the right handlebar as your sitting on the bike. You know the button I'm talking about. Its the button you push to make the bike turn over.

Take this switch assembly off the bike or let it hang from the handlebars so you can get to the wires inside of it.

Their are like 2 or three screws holding this piece to the handlebars and they are hard to see but they are their.

Alright alright once you have it off you are probably going to notice right away that one of the wires has broke its soldering connection to the circuit board. This is your headlight wire. If you just take a screwdriver and press the wire back onto the contact on the board your headlights will light right up. So all you need to do now is solder this back onto the contact on the board.

On my bike it didn't last because I do tons of wheelies and it just shook apart my solder job over time. What I did was soldering in a little longer piece of wire to the end of the broken contact wire to give it a little extra leighway and its been holding strong.

Well I really hope this helps and if it does please give me a fixya rating,
AadoubleA

Hi, Ashok if your headlight is not working, 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.

Head lamp won't work. Fuse and bulb are good and there is power to the socket


Check bulb. If power is going to socket then the bulb must be faulty. There may be rust on terminals inside socket.

Break light does not work and the two small head lights as well.


the break light not working could be due to the pedal sensor not connected or faulty .check also the wiring loom under the seat as it could be disconnected .
in regards to the small headlights , check all fuses as you could have blown fuses as well .
contacts could also oxidise and not making contacts
