Bright lites

Is there more than one fuse or relay for the high beams? My bright lights don't work.I Have all the Tupperware off the bike now trying to figure out what the problem is. I checked the fuses under the seat and the grounds are good on the headlight. There is know power at the plug for the high beams when I turn the switch on.
Any ideas would be appreciated. I went all season without bright lights. The funny thing is though, every now and then I would try the brights and they would come on and stay on for awhile and then go off and not come back on.

Do you mean no power or known power at the bulb socket? If no power, it might to be time to check the handlebar switches.

Re: Bright lites

Make sure to check brown wires for the headlights. They come loose easily.
