Bob:

I'll be there. I have high & low beam HID's to install, and MotoLlite Repair (I have the new harness from MotoLite), AND I hope to have a accessory fuse block to install, by the time we meet on Saturday.

I have a Ride4Kids Task Force Meeting at 9:00 a.m. I'll leave early so that I can be at your house by 11:00-11:30 a.m.

Many thanks, Bob...

Smile A Big Thanks to Bob "Ten Beers"

Bob:

I just wanted to take the time to thank you publicly for your hard work, today, to get my bike wired properly for the HID system, and to wire in the autoswitch and repair my Motolites. There's no way I could have done the job you did. I just hope I was able to help you a little. I owe you!

Thoughts on loss of power to low beam

Bob:

I was looking through the Clymer Shop Manual, and I don't see any headlight relay in the wiring from the fuse to the highbeam/low beam switch on the left handlebar. I wonder if the power to the switch became disconnected, assuming there's a connector on that switch.

What is your experience along those lines?

Question

I don't remember there being any conectors at the switches, they are hardwired down to where they plug into the harness. We did not open any of those handle bar covers until we went to install the autoswitch, and all of that worked fine. Under the stingray I believe is where the handle bar stuff connects in to the main harness. Just a thought.

You're right, Bob. The low beam failed well before we removed the handlebar cover, on the right side. Probably, if that plug (under the Stingray) became detatched, more then the low beam would have lost power!

I left a message for the Service Manager of BMW of SF to call me tomorrow, when they open. Hey, I've got a warrantly; so, I say, "Punt"!
