Headlight help!

I've googled and searched and can't find info on my problem

My 2007 SE headlight sometimes does not come on after start up, the high beam indicator is lit, but the maim bulb is not, the parking bulb is on, usually this will go away by the time I am ready to ride off.

Sometimes it doesn't come on for a while.

Today when it acted up, I rapped on the headlight housing and it came on.

Anyone else ever had this problem?,

The connectors in the housing are not sealed. I would disassemble and inspect/clean and hit them with some electric grease. Including the headlight connector of course.

Did our fix, bought some mesh a the market in Antigua for 5 Q then cut it to fit.

Should slow down the main lot of shit flying straight in anyway, time will tell.

But keep an eye on it because I suspect this finer mesh will clog more easily.

Yes but at least I can clean it easier too

Found a skunky old tooth brush on the road and cleaned it up too so I can clean the mesh quickly .... see how it goes.

Hopefully keep the lower cores cleaner anyway

Updated Tank Brace for Tank

I note you guys are using the old tank brace round tube jobbie.

There is an updated part number that Safari tanks can get to you that helps in clearance & wont break like the one your using.

New-style Safari brace

***Caution***

It seems my "new-style" brace needs some slight modification. It's rubbing on each side of the radiator, both on the seam and the corner. Sorry for the poor phone pics, but you get the idea. You can see bare aluminum if you look closely. I was actually thinking about calling up to request the old style brace for this reason.





Anyone else with similar experience?
