Hi, Alex 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 the 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.

well i would try the switch and see and if that doesnt work then check the wiring for a loose connection or ground or maybe it could be as ez as checking the light bulb it might be loose in the socket

SOURCE: 2005 Honda Goldwing- Electrical issue. Bright

sounds like a wire has been added the wrong way or wires have damage, switch could be the culprit. Does the kill switch work? I would be checking all wires and the conectors for heat damage (melting).And fuses for all circuts. if low beam is used does key work to stop engine?

I dont think its the stator or regulator. If it gets brighter when you put the indicators on or apply the brake light, it sounds very much like the headlamp is using their return to earth. I know you have checked the grounds (earth), but often the grounds or earths are linked up within the loom.
Do you have a wiring diagram? If so, identify which is the earth return for the headlight and run a direct feed back to the battery negative. If this produces a bright light, you will know there is a problem in the loom.
You could just wire a new earth into the system or start cleaning all the little connectors.
good luck

My 05 kawasaki zzr6 will idle all day and will rev once then will stall. Seems like its running low on fuel pressure. No clog in the filter or the tank, seems like there is a fuel pump but it does not make...


Sounds love me a pressure issue. When key is first turned on, you should be hearing the pump pressuring the fuel rail. If not check fuse. If good disconnect fuel pump, and install test leads from multimeter. Turn key on, you should have 12volts. If you have voltage, and not hearing pump pressuring at turn of key, the fuel pump is bad.
