Yesterday when I was at our club warm up my headlights were not working. After checking all the fuses and seeing that even when I put on the hi beams still nothing. A buddy of mine figured out what the problem was. It was a quick fix, and he said it happened to him a couple of times.

Anyone want to guess what it was. :confused:

You guys are good, the starter button was not 100% released. I'll have to spray it will contact cleaner.
So.... It wasn't the crush washer...... darn...:mad:

If you read posts from various motorcycle forums the crush washer has been the accused of causing extreem driver fatigue, global warming, frontend wobble, catastrophic engine failure in other peoples bikes and political unrest in the world.... LOL:D

Sounded like a classic malfunction of the foo-foo valve, and that can only be fixed with the help of the Illudium P36 Explosive Space Modulator;)

Starter button not completely disengaged ????? Actually I have no clue. I have a problem with one of my low beams )left) not working occassionally. The connection at the bulb is loose and I have to reach inside the faring an jiggle it. (not while riding)...... So what was the reason ????:eek:

Had the very same problem myself last year. Sprayed the starter button with contact cleaner and it works like a charm now!

Well, you guys are so silly!!
The first thing I checked was the air pressure in the tires. Then I checked the voltage of the battery. At that point Two Wheel Wing I checked the oil level of the engine oil. Then I even went to the extent to wash the shield. I finally gave up and asked around.:rolleyes:
