I think you might be finding out this weekend how much damage you did. If it still runs I don't think you did any damage to it, just got terrible performance. And maybe a little hammering of the valve stems....I was supposed to do my valves years ago, or about 12,000 miles ago, haven't done it yet. Still runs good, when it starts missing and skipping, I'll do it, but till then........ Hope this helps.

2008 honda cbr125r the head lights on my cbr change from one side to the other pending on high or low beam is this normal or should they both be on at the same time?


The high and lo beam even on an Africa Twin are made separate so it dose not overload the charge manager of your bike. I tried wireing both of the bulbs in paralel and ended up burnig my battery charging unit.

So in conclusion they should not be on at the same time. The headlights operate fine on your bike.
