Hi, Jonlop07 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 headlight 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.

AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.

12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.

Hey Joel,
I am a little confused... is it an ignition fault ..or a transmission fault?? ... I think the different issues will show up as totally different symptoms..
First.. new spark plugs..(make SURE they are the EXACT FACTORY replacements).. and gapped correctly!!
Is it a minor or intermittent miss... or is it a constant miss.... and it COULD still be in the carbs.. How did you sync the carbs?
Did you remove the pilot jets and make sure ALL the air/gas passages were clean..(Brake cleaner sprayed thru ALL OF THEM!!)??..

Please tell me more --with details!!..Reply on here
Thanks
