Being the highly intelligent person I am, always sharp and aware of all things going on around me, I finally realized the parts sales clerk sold me the high beam instead of the low, and I have believed it to be the low beam all this time. So, I kept installing and removing it, checking all the connections, swearing like a drunk sailor at the bike, threatining to trade her in on a Gold Wing, etc., and not until I had removed it for about the 20th time did I realize that the high beam bulb was now no longer in the headlight and was instead in my hand. Back to A&S tomorrow to vent my wrath on the unsuspecting parts counter clerk (and don't you warn him Ted) and get the correct bulb. This time I can easily see that the old bulb is indeed bad and I am sure the problem will be corrected with a new one. The one good thing in all this, aside from advice from the great people on this forum, is that I removed the headlight modulator. I never really liked it anyway. So, thanks again for all the help, but I thought you might like to know it was operator error all along.
