Question about 1993 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883
Sounds like the circuit breaker for your lights is tripping. But, all your lights should go out if this is the case. This is quite common as some people will put a bulb that draws too much current in the light and it starts tripping the breaker. If this is the problem, the light should come back on in a few minutes.
I'd check the bulb and see what the wattage of the bulb is. Refer to the owners manual or go to the dealer and purchase a new stock wattage bulb. This should solve the problem.
Of course, there could be something wrong with the "pigtail" that connects to the back of the headlamp. I've seen them get hot and loose contact. If this is the case, you'll have to purchase a new "pigtail" and wire it in.
