My low beam wasn't working when I got the bike. Turned out to be a broken wire inside the sheath going to the blub. It had been stretched and broken at some point.

I fixed it by replacing all the wiring to the bulb and wiring them both directly to the battery with fuses and relays. Relays were fired off the old wiring. The lights are brighter now and I don't have to worry too much about the old wiring.
