929 No low beam

I am new to this forum i hope i am posting in the right place. Any how i have 2000 cbr 929 with no low beam. The bike runs fine every other light works, replaced relay replaced fuse checked start switch checked hi/low beam switch and checked bulb. I get twelve volts to the low beam connector with no bulb installed when i put in the bulb i get no voltage. Where else can i look for a fault? Any help would be appreciated.

Is the light blown?

Re: 929 No low beam

u think u got a shortcut at the socket ? take voltage from the wire, maybe you may have to do a soldering job at the socket.

Do you mean you've fixed it?

Re: 929 No low beam

The person that I bought mine from put high wattage bulbs in it and fried the insulators. Had to replace all three in the long run.

so you have 12v to plug so that side is good did you cheek the ground side at the plug just a thought

Re: 929 No low beam

Ya probly bad ground. plug the bulb in, with it on you should have close to 0 volts on the ground side of the plug, with a good bulb that is.

Re: 929 No low beam

If it's at the shop, it's too late. If not, then I suggest you replace the accessible wiring. A high wattage bulb can not only burn the insulators (I assume by this you are talking about the colour-coded wire covering) but the wiring itself. There is enough continuity to hold some voltage when you put the voltmeter to it, but the moment you get any sort of current flow, like when you try to operate the bulb, the connection(s) go bad.

I used to struggle with that sort of thing on my rusty old British cars when I first started driving. The damned Lucas wiring was NFG when exposed to salty Canadian roads. Hmm, that reminds me of my first car, a 1962 Austin A40 Mk I Countryman. What a POS.

Anyways .... if I am correct, and you have some 99.5% fried wiring, it might prove very expensive to have that diagnosed and repaired at a shop. If I were in your shoes I would replace as much of the wiring as I could get to before handing it over to somebody who would charge me.

Agreed that it's best to search for threads before starting a new one. Hopefully the start switch is the cause of the problems, and not burned up wires. But I thought that thread and the linked one talked about ALL headlights not working, not just low beam no working?
