Hi, Srgotts1 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 headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator.
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

SOURCE: no full beam on my YBR

I would say your have a problem with a headlight relay. It uses a switch to direct power to either filament of the headlight. This could have blown, leaving you with only the lower filament working.

The regulator and rectifier deal primarly with the charging system.

i have a 2005 fz6 fazer with the same problem and the problem is a good one with hard answers. the right hand light is set at a different angle to the left so is designed to point in a different direction to the one on the right. its just very tricky to re align the beam settings afterwards to stop blinding a motorist infront of you. i paid the garage to do this very same problem.

SOURCE: main beam warning light stays on but no main

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initial checks would be:

  • continuity of the bright / dim filaments of the headlight;
  • the headlight bulb socket;
  • +12 when switch on bright on the yellow wire;
  • +12 when switch on dim on the green wire.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

There is a non-serviceable cam in the low/high beam switch that changes contacts on the switch, sounds like it's broken. Bite the bullet, and have the switch replaced.

I have got a yamaha xvs 1100 dragstar classic 2005 model. it ticks over but as soon as i rev up it cuts out. what do you think could be the problem ?


check the fuel filters, it sounds to me as though there is a partial blockage which allows just enough to sustain tickover and starves the bike upon rev up. this is the first step to check and the most likely. good luck.

First I would change all the spark plugs, and if that didn't make a difference then it sounds like the coil(s) are warming up and breaking down........when it starts to skip take a good pair of pliers with good rubber on them and pull each spark plug wire, when you get to the one that the running doesn't change then I would replace that particular coil
