Question about 1989 Honda CBR 600 F Hurricane
I have a 1992 Honda CBR 600 F2 that has no head lights no tail light or brake light. The other day I ran off the road by somebody that either did not see me in the lane or just didn't care. I ended up barely missing another car coming head on and ended up laying it down on the curb/sidewalk and the bike slid eventually into a street sign. This cracked the fairings/plastics on the front of my bike and put some minor scratches down the sides but after the wreck, everything worked ok except the high beam on my headlight. I had low beam tail light and brake lights. The next day I went to ride my bike and had no headlight at all no tail light or brake light. I have turn signals gauges horn etc. but for some reason now can not get the headlight tail or brake light to work. The fuses are ok and I even tried new ones and see no visual wires broken bared crossed or shorting anywhere. Is there a Relay or inline fuse somewhere that I am missing or something like that or what else could be causing this problem? @
Hi, Gary if your headlight is not working, intermittent, 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, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/low 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.

There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!

Look for chafing of wiring.. your on the rite track keep isolating wires..use a vom to locate a grounding of a wire,,good luck, something like this may take time...
