Question about 2007 Honda XR 125 L
Hi ! I bought an XR125 last year. My problem is that my headlight is dead. I have checked all fuses. Everything ok. I check the wire (blue/white) but not current. I try to find the relay where this blue/white wire ends up but can't find it. What I actually did is to link up a cable between the blue/white wire directly to the battery. Can anyone tell me where is the relay location for the headlight? Thanks@
Hi, Jeremy if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright 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, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/low beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

SOURCE: changing headlight
Had a similar problem on mine when I installed the cobra light bar. If you remove the headlight from the housing there is a connector (think it was orange) with a single wire. It is the starter-light cutout. my connector shorted out so I had to cut it and replace it. No headlight problems since. It is worth checking, I had to pay $50 to have the Honda shop find it. Good luck & ride safe!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, suggested checks using a testlight (preferably, rather than a voltmeter) with the ignition switch ON:
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa. Happy Holidays.

There is usually a kill button on all motorcycles, make sure it is reset. Also make sure you have the gas turned on. Good luck!

First check battery connections...
then check Ignition fuse
then check your interlocks...in neutral, sidestand up....kill switch to RUN...also try using clutch in case the neutral switch is not grounding the starter circuit properly.
