Hi guys. I just changed my battery. When i turned the bike on, the headlight main light did not come on. Any Ideas? Also, is it a big job to change a headlight?

Re: Headlight not working

Are you sure you got all the red leads back on the battery plus terminal? Often one will drop down and be missed. Having checked that look to the gound at the head light (always a brown wire) as they have been known to cook over time and corrode, resulting in a poor connection.
