Headlights lowbeam TTSE
« on: November 26, 2015, 05:43:36 pm »
While unlocking the gate at home today I glanced back at the Trophy, its running on side stand for a minute or so.  I'm seeing one headlight on low beam only. Flicked light switch to full beam and both full beams are on. So my daft question is should I have one low beam or two please, not another one in my locality to compare with. I've a feeling I know the answer but ...
Thanks Gary

G'day Gary,

Normally the headlight bulbs are high/low (ie dual).
Wherever you go, there you are.

Hallo Gary,

I have 2 low beams.
I think it has to do with regulations in Ireland?
In the Netherlands 2 low beams are allowed.

Sounds like you might have one low beam filament  that is burnt out. Separate filaments are used for high beam, so that can still work when a low beam is burnt out.

felt a bit daft asking the question in the first place, but I'm convinced now low beam one side is blown.

BEFORE  you replace low beam,, On my way home from dealership with brand new bike,  My wife ( in front of me) slowed down and advised me that I only had one light working  ,, The shop was closing as I had picked up my bike, So I went on home.  Next morning I got out and started screwing around on the bike   I found that the power connection AT the headlight was not attached,,  It took some yoga gymnastics to reach up in there but I got it on and works fine now
A nasty weather day riding is still better than any day working
