Honda CL90 stalls when headlight is on

The title says it all. I recently bought this 1969 Scrambler 90 and got it running. It runs good but if you turn the headlight on, after a few seconds, the headlight dims and the engine winds down and stops. Turn the headlight off and it starts and runs just fine. if you are riding and turn the headlight on, it starts to bog and die, but turn the headlight off and it comes right back to life. It's possibly unrelated, but the headlight only works on high beam. Any thoughts? I've done a lot of work on cars but not much on motorcycles, and electrical issues are a pain!
