Re: Head Light Issue on DRZ400SM??
yeah, thats smart...i was thinking there might be some mechanism that turns light off for a second while starter moto going? when you start it, the light appears to be dimming due to starter pull, but actually it could be turning off and on or something to preserve power for the starter?
not sure, but looked in manual....doesnt say much. the light does come on with the ignition key...manual,
"NOTE: Start the engine promptly after turning the key to the "ON" position or the battery will lose power due to consumption by the headlight and taillight."
section for stater button,
"NOTE: The headligt will go off when the electric starter button is pushed"
Hmmmm?? Anyway, sometimes i can start the bike and be driving and realize the headlight is not on. i pull over and try a bunch of stuff and say wtf and look real stupid before it starts working again. then i just take off and start daydreaming again cause i got what i wanted. lol! im gonna make sure connections good on light and starter, etc., then check fuse box and just look it over tomorrow. next time it happens, im going to be calm and deliberate and try to figure out what makes it work again. i have feeling its the starter and like you said....there is a switch that shuts light off at same time. its staying off. (Sorry so long)
Do what you like...like what you do!
