Question about 2006 Suzuki GSX-R 600

1 Answer

My 2006 GSXR-600 headlight goes in and out

The previous owner had installed a "HID" kit...When I'm riding the headlight will just randomly go in and out and sometimes the light will just remain off and sometimes it will come back on... The fuses are good, I just put in a brand new battery. Any suggestions?!... I need help badly!!! Thank You, it will be highly appreciated!!! :0D

Hi, Gixxer86 if your headlight is not working, 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.

SOURCE: headlight burns brighter when rpms rise then light burns out


Be sure there is a voltage regulator/rectifier in your system.
Its a little aluminium block with small cooling fins, and should be fixed with contact on the chassis.

You can take every regulator, even from a moped for a simple electric circuit.
You just have to know if your bike was a 6V or a 12V one

Otherwise, you can easily make a regulator by yourself, a diode bridge, and a 12V regulator from your local electronics shop.

SOURCE: my oil light is on, i have 39 miles on my gsxr

Don't listen to the idot that said to change your oil at 39 miles! If you only have 39 miles on your bike and your oil light is on it mean there is low oil pressure so you need more oil in it. Cause the only reason that light goes on is when theres not enough oil in it. Not because you need an oil change.Also the oil change should be done at least every 3,000 miles but I do mine at 2,500. Also When you change the oil for the first time, you want to change the Filter as well. Every oil change there after you dont have to change the filter every time, you can do it every other oil change if you choose to. And always fill it up to in between the lines of your sight glass. and always makesure that after you put oil in it you start it up and for about 30-60 seconds then shut off and let sit for about an hour and add oil as needed.

You need to check the Main Fuse. If you don't have anything - no light, No dash lights then is got to be the main fuse.

Generally the ballast is a separate box that is external to the headlight unit. HIDs4U does slim fit kits especially for motorcycles.
You may have to modify the bulb holder to get the cables through to the new HID bulb.

HID headlight

Most likely the HID transformer is not producing the correct voltage to properly charge the HID bulb. 12 volts goes into the transformer, but a lot more comes out. The HID needs a lot of volts to run, hence the need for the abovementioned transformer. But, the transformers are REALLY expensive.
