I had the same same problem with my 1992 vulcan 750. more than likely it is your reserve lighting devive located on the right side battery box. have you had a problem with your regulator/rectifier lately or a power surge of some type?

    I have had zero problems with this bike. I didn't even notice the light went out. I started the bike, rode it out to get tires put on and they checked the light and said I needed a relay switch. They kept the bike for three weeks and still hadn't even ordered the part, andsaid they were so busy it would be at least another week before they could get to it, so I brought the bike home. I don't have another shop near by to take it to, so I was going to try and fix it myself.

    I need to know what the relay switch looks like and where on the bike to find it.

    Mine is a '79 Yamaha. This relay is not available from anyone new. You'll have to buy a used one Buyer beware. 2' x2" x1.5" four spade connectors.Located under the tank.

I own a 2004 Vulcan nomad and I also had the same problem. My headlight was working fine, until I switch it over to the HID. When I put the HID on, it doesn't seem to work. Then I put my original bulb back on, but for some reason it doesn't work anymore. The original bulb works fine, and there is nothing wrong with the fuse on the right side of the bike. Can't Figure out what's wrong with it. Does Anybody know?

Then you need to check the wiring leading to the switch. The handle bar switch may be corroded and therefore, power can pass thru to the contact when it's switched to on.

2001 Kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Drifter wiring diagram


Hi, Anonymous 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, 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 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.

No power to headlight 93 750 kaw vulcan light is good


More than likely it is your reserve lighting device, located on the right side of the battery box. also test battery voltage at rest, then start and recheck with a volt meter.at rest should be at 12 or a bit over, cranked should be at around 13 or 14, rev engine, you should be at 14 or more, had same issue on a 92' ended up being stator was going bad, and rectifier was replaced.

No headlight fuses and bulb are good


Your starter button is dirty or bad. The starter button does two things. Push it in halfway and the lights turn off to put more power to the ignition and starter. Push the button in all the way and the solenoid engages. Try cleaning the starter button. If it will not work after cleaning you may have to buy a new right switch assembly.

Headlight not working...bulb and fuse are good


check fuses first... if ok, buy an electrical tester from walmart for $5 and see if it's getting any electrical to the headlight.. if it is.. replace bulb

It's at least a good starting point.

I have a 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 and the headlight suddenly stopped working. I looked for fuses and can't find any. The headlight appears to be good. Any suggestions?


you can remove the head light bulb, power the bulb with a charger or check it with voltmeter. if bulb is good, make sure the ground is good on the light housing. if fuses are good, could be the actual switch on the handlegrips
