Hello; My name is Andre and I am from Brazil. I am new to the forum and wanted to share this trick with you all. On the GS 1200 the low beam is switched on the moment the engine starts to run. If you want to switch the lights off, press and hold the turn signal cancellation button for 5 seconds, release it, and hold the right turn signal button for another 5 secs. This should turn the headlight off. This procedure may be done after switching the key and after the usual check up and before turning the engine on. It also works after the engine is running. Unfortunatelly, to switch the lights back on you must switch the key off resetting the procedure.
