Question about Honda CB 100 Motorcycles
Not an easy one here,,,, Take out the brake light bulb (eliminating problem bulb) if light still dulls it's a wiring problem ! , most likely at swing arm or chassis to mud guard or wheel arch .
If not, (no problem) run a seperate earth wire from battery to headlight earth (make sure of polarity) This will indicatean EARTHING problem . Do the Same for the positive side which will indicate a problem at the front fork to headlamp assy area (not likely)

Hi, this seams to be a head light wire pinched or trapped and very near a DEAD SHORT. you will need to check the full length of the lighting system. if you see a cable tye too tight. or the cable pinched under a bracket. please INSULATE with TAPE and make the wiring harness back to what is was. this may involve another wire and this circuit. sometimes if you take the BATTERY NEGATIVE LEAD OFF and connect a bulb from BATTERY to BULB and to the NEGATIVE LEAD. if the TEST BULB is very BRIGHT. LEAVE the TEST BULB on this CIRCUIT. then a part short is indicated. by disconecting various connector this will give you a better idea of place of the partly shorted wiring. if you move harness at different location the bulb should DIM and gives another indication where it is. take bulb OUT of CIRCUIT REPLACE NEGATIVE LEAD. gerry
