SOURCE: 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:
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.

Is the coil properly grounded, sounds like its finding an alternative ground, make sure the metal of the coil where it is bolted to the frame makes good electrical contact with the frame, unbolt it and clean up the metal on the frame and coil with emery paper, dab grease on the metal contact of the coil and bolt it back to the frame - see if the problem persists.

Testimonial: "See above. Thanks."
that switch is part of the safety system & works together with the side stand switch should you attempt to engage a gear with the side stand down. Regards Geoff
