Re: Intermittent headlight on '05
Thankfully, the tail lights and everything else work fine. Sounds like it might be the HID ballast (not sure of their failure modes) or a relay/connection failure near the additional 30A relay/s I added 18 months ago. The HID is grounded to the same place as two accessory lights I have mounted, and both are wired to the same +ve heavy duty feed wire, and both accessory lights work fine (the accessory lights and the HID are on separate relays). The accessory lights will be my headlights on my trip if the main headlamp fails, as I don't have enough time to rip all the tupperware off to get to the nose cone and really check it out. My high beam works fine, but I'll have to stick to daytime riding for now!
